Bonny Doon Vineyard

It's hard to know where to begin when talking about this California winery icon! To say that Randall Grahm was a forerunner of the California focus on quality Rhone varietal wines "back in the day" is like saying that Michael Jordan knew something about scoring points playing basketball in the 1980s. Randall's relentless intellectual curiosity has led his vinous pursuits around the world. Randall now has a more focused set of wines targeting smaller production and special vineyards he has worked with over the years to best encapsulate and expand qualitatively upon those wines which most inspire him. We think you'll agree that this current, smaller lineup of handcrafted wines represents the best he has yet produced. Welcome to Doonville!

However, note well, the fruit for this wine does not, despite

Wine Spectator 91 "Firm and richly flavored, with gripping tannins wrapped around vibrant wild berry, plum, espresso, black licorice and savory dried herb notes. Ends with a long, deep finish. Drink now through 2021. 1,444 cases made. –JL"  2012 Clos de Gilroy For a long time I went to bed


Bonny Doon Dom Blaqueurs Syrah 2003
86  Robert Parker 
 Robert Parker 86 "The 2003 Le Pousseur Syrah offers a classic Grahm explanation on the back label as to why this wine essentially lacks depth. In any event, it is a straightforward, innocuous, monolithic Syrah revealing decent blackberry and peppery notes, hints of forest floor and spice, but no

Bonny Doon "Bouteille Call" Syrah Port NV
92  Wine Enthusiast 
Wine Enthusiast 92"The ultimate chocolate liqueur. Winemaker Randall Grahm calls this "an infusion" that's been boosted with brandied fruit that brings it to 17% alcohol. It's gooey in raspberry essence finished with a chocolate dust, but a brilliant squeeze of lime adds life and zest."

Wine Enthusiast 91"Cherries ooze through this Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre-based blend. There are also aromas and flavors of rosemary, thyme and other field herbs. This bone-dry wine is complex and interesting."
