An exceptional expression of Californian terroir. Harmonious, masterful combination of fruity, spicy and roasted notes. Long finish. Tannins of exemplary finesse. A lesson in style from California!more reviews

Unmissable, this wine is one of the Top 100 (19/100) according to Wine Enthusiast's "Wines of 2019".
All roads lead to the Rhône! This is the philosophy of the Bonny Doon Vineyard. One of the most legendary blends of the Rhône Valley. The spice of the Syrah / Shiraz perfectly guides the Morello cherry notes of the Cinsault. In short, an explosion of fruit on the palate woven by a fine structure that makes our mouths water. Magic is at work in the Cigare Volant. Cigare Volant, named after the Châteauneuf-du-Pape bylaw (still in effect today): "Aircraft called flying saucers or flying cigars [cigares volants], of any nationality whatsoever, are prohibited from taking off, landing or flying over the territory." We would like to thank our extra-terrestrial neighbours for respecting this decree.

An attempt to reproduce the Rhone blend in California. A successful attempt. It was very interesting to compare this wine with the Rhone on the one hand and Spanish Grenache on the other. It is intense, with aromas of flowers, prunes and marinated. Well balanced.

BONNY DOON VINEYARD

The story of Bonny Doon Vineyard began with the foolish attempt to reproduce Burgundy in California, Randall Grahm very quickly understood that he would have much more success creating more distinctive and original wines by working the Rhône grape varieties on the Central Coast in California. The conclusion he drew from this experience is that in a warm Mediterranean climate, blends are usually the most successful. In 1986, Bonny Doon Vineyard launched the first vintage (1984) of "Le Cigare Volant", a tribute to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and which will remain its flagship product of the Domaine. "Le Cigare Volant" (The Flying Cigar) takes its name from the municipal decree of Châteauneuf-du-Pape (still in force today): "The overflight, landing and take-off of aircraft known as flying saucers or flying cigars of any nationality whatsoever are prohibited on the territory of the commune. We again thank our extra-terrestrial neighbors for respecting the decree."
