with the following review:
The name and label of this wine honors a classic french story. In 1954 some wine producers were quite nervous about extraterrestrials. So, the council of Chateauneuf-du-Pape passed an ordinance prohibiting flying saucers or “Flying Cigars” as they called them from landing in their vineyards and damaging the vines. The law allowed for immediate impounding of any Flying Cigars (Le Cigare Volant) that dare to land on their grapes. Le Cigare is a blend of traditional Rhone grapes and it is out of this world. (cmon, I had too).
Bonny Doon Vineyard Le Cigare Volant Syrah Grenache 2006, California, United States: This wine is a blend of 43.6% syrah, 43.5% grenache, 11.7% cinsault, 1.1% mourvedre and 0.1% carignane. I love the band-aid Bordeaux aroma I get first followed by cassis, blackcurrant and smoke, but most of all, earth. Full-bodied and complex.
