Widely regarded as the father of Rhône varietals in California, the Bonny Doon winery was founded by Rhône-champion and California visionary Randall Grahm in 1983. Defying the market, Randal pursued a vision of producing low alcohol, earth-driven, old world-style wines that continues today.
The 2017 “Cigare Bubble Moose” is a delicious new pétillant-style rosé composer of 57% Grenache, 18% Grenache Blanc, 9% Mourvèdre, 6% Roussanne, 5% Carignan and 5% Cinsault. With the refreshing acidity that is common of the classic rosés of Provence, and the low alcohol that has become a hallmark of the Doon wines, we conclude that this is one tasty can of moose’y Vin Gris.
