Bonny Doon Le Cigare Volant 2006

86 points

A Chateauneuf De Pape inspired wine, though this is a medium bodied wine, nicely savoury although Brett seemed to be a bit higher than I would have liked.  It’s a roughly 40, 40 blend of syrah and granache with 10% cinsault and a tiny 1% of mouvedre.  Drink now and over the next couple of years.  Screwcap (nice to see on a US wine).

Retains its wonderful label, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wine_humour
