Bonny Doon Delusions of Grandeur 2008 wine review by (PB)
This is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignane, and Cinsault. It swirls like a light red wine of Pinot Noir or Beaujolais. Bouquet has light red fruit with spice notes up front with aromas of raspberry behind.
Palate--Nice light cocoa front with bright red fruit and a kicky mid-palate. This was another surprise that it had such a nice presence when it seemed like it would be fairly non-descript. I presume it runs around the $12 price point. Unique and quite tasty so raise a glass.
