In 1954 the mayor of Châteauneuf-du-Pape was quite perturbed and apprehensive that UFOs or "flying cigars" might do damage to their vineyards. So, right-thinking men all, they passed a legal ordinance prohibiting such landings. The ordinance has worked well, as there have been no such landings since the adoption of this far-sighted legislation.
This is the new, re-engineered Le Cigare Volant from Bonny Doon Vineyard that was introduced with the 2018 vintage. Compared to the old blend, winemaker Randall Grahm dropped the Mourvedre from the blend and greatly increased the Cinsault.  The 2021 Bonny Doon Vineyard Le Cigare Volant begins with a lovely aroma of varied red fruits, licorice, cedar and wintergreen. The more you swirl it the more you uncover, so much so that it's hard not to just keep sticking your nose in the glass.
Enjoy a glass or, why not, the whole bottle. Cheers
