Bonny Doon Contra 2010
The 2010 Contra unites the flavors of ripe old vine carignane-lots of dark fruit-plum, black cherry, blackberry with an exceptionally vibrant, peppery/ minty, smoked meat note deriving from the brilliant Bien Nacido Vineyard. If this wine were a musical instrument, it would have to be an oboe, blowing a haunting melody that is dark and smoky.
Wine SpectatorA supple, charming, open-knit mix of ripe plum and black cherry, with touches of cedar and crushed rock. Carignane and Syrah. Drink now through 2019. 1,972 cases made.
