"GOOD VALUE, Fairly light but not lacking in character, the latest Vin Gris de Cigare is a spry and slender, pale-hued pink wine, and its relatively delicate mix of cherries, strawberries and citrus is accented by a scant suggestion of wet stones. It wants drinking with appropriately lighter dishes when poured with food and will very capably quench warm-weather thirst when sipped on its own. Reviewed: July 2020" (CG)

"Best Buy, Light raspberry, delicate cotton candy, brisk melon and a hint of citrus show on the nose of this pale rosé. There's a great zip and tense texture to the sip, where ash and talc flavors meet with rounded red plum, strawberry and watermelon, all sliced by strong acidity. -Matt Kettmann" (WE)

Winery Notes:
The 2019 Bonny Doon Vin Gris de Cigare opens with typical rose notes: wild strawberry, peach, guava, and rhubarb and a very discreet scent of white pepper. The wine has a wonderful creaminess and length on the palate in virtue due to the practice of leaving the wine post-fermentation on its lees to great effect.
