  • A Proper Claret is Randall Grahm and Bonny Doon's homage, only a soupçon parodic, to what the Brits used to cozy up to, which was, well... a proper claret. By producing this Bord-faux blend, the Dooniverse sullies what, for 30 years, was a Cabernet-free zone. Not to worry though, there's enough long lost Bordelais grapes like Tannat and Petite Verdot in the mix to keep it ironic.
