Bonny Doon Vineyard Le Cigare Volant Central Coast

Wine Description

(2006 Vintage) Pair this racey red with a bloomsdale spinach salad in a sherry vinaigrette garnished with carpaccio of tuna or beef. Speaking of beef, a rare steak in any number of variations (tri-tip, hanger, New York, filet) would be quite delish. But more exotic fare such as chicken tikka masala or Tandoori lamb chops will also work wonderfully well. While the zesty ‘06 is excellent right now, aging it for 2-3 more years would be all to the good.
