Wine of the Week

BONNY DOON
2017
CLOS DE GILROY GRENACHE

 
              Bonny Doon released its first wine in 1986,  seven years after Randall Grahm graduated with a degree in Plant Science. His intent was to create “The Great American Pinot Noir”. However, Rhone varietals intervened and the “Rhone Ranger” was born. Randall’s philosophy and goal is to let the wine speak for itself as a reflection of where it comes from (Terroir). This Grenache (with a little help from Mourvedre) is deep ruby in color with aromas of raspberry, cranberry, and spice.  The palate is an easy drinking combination of plum, raspberry, black currant and hints of white pepper, mint and earth leading to a nice, smooth lingering finish.
Randall, with a dictionary and thesaurus in hand, is a best selling author, blogger and has been inducted to the Vintner’s Hall of Fame. 
              This is an easy to love wine, a lighter red for the end of summer. Pair this with a peppered ahi steak off the grill, and most anything you can drizzle a little olive oil on, like a Salad Nicoise.
