Following up on my recent report on Bonny Doon Pacific Rim Riesling, we pulled the cork -- a dark-blue plastic one at that -- out of another wild and crazy wine from Bonny Doon last night. This one's a strong dessert wine, something like a pale Port, chock full of apparent allusions to Picasso and Hemingway and the Spanish Revolution that tug at the edges of my memory but that I can't quite get.
Bonny Doon Garnacha non-vintage California Pink Wine ($12.99/500 ml)
"We drank the pink wine and it was good," the back label quotes, perhaps from The Sun Also Rises. I think maybe Hemingway would have drunk this wine and found it good, if he could have found it. (Nov. 14, 1997)
