Bonny Doon Le Cigare Volant 2010 1.5L
2010 was a cool vintage that provided an extra aromatic "lift" to the already vivid Cigare nose. Spearmint, cassis and blackberry leaf with even suggestions of cardamom and cocoa in the nose. The palate is doonright Burgundian-lush, creamy, and savory-lots of dark fruit-sloe and Damson plums, bing cherries and acaí (too long in Santa Cruz?) and a bright acidity, with exceptional length. My guess is that this is a Cigare of extreme ageworthiness.
