2012 Bonny Doon 'A Proper Claret' Bonny Doon Vineyard 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Petit Verdot, 8% Tannat, 7% Syrah, 1% Petite Sirah. A word about 'A Proper Claret' from winemaker, Randall Grahm: "Bonny Doon Vineyard is, as we all know, a strictly 'Cabernet-Free Zone'… if ever I were to drink a Cabernet-based blend, this would be one that would serve quite well. It is lean, neither overly alcoholic (weighing in at 13%), nor overly extracted; it is precisely as one would imagine A Proper Claret to be. The wine contains a substantial dollop of petit verdot (22%), which adds a silky note of violets and textural elegance, in precision counterpoint to the lead-in-the-pencil firmness offered by the inclusion of the manly tannat (8%)." What others are saying… The wine is quite drinkable, even lovely, though it has a serious aspect too. The alcohol content is an eminently manageable 13.2%… We happily drank this wine with Saturday night’s pizza and guessed at a price at least $10 more than it actually costs. Excellent. A Great Bargain. - Fredric Koeppel,
