Randall Grahm's Bonny Doon Vineyard.
A big, smoky wine with loads of tobacco coming off, but shrouded in fantastic bramble fruit aromas. The palate has more of the smoke, dark stone fruit with a dollop of black pepper. Yet despite all these bigger flavours, it is so well balanced, elegant and has a freshness at the end that finishes off the wine like a good last chapter in a book. A great wine from a great winemaker. 92pts
