Jon Bonné's 'The New California Wine'
While there's an accent in Jon Bonné's name, he doesn't prefer one in his wines. His new utterly-compelling book The New California Wine: A Guide to the Producers and Wines Behind a Wine Revolution (Ten Speed Press) can be read as a fight against what he calls Big Flavor: the over-ripe wines that obliterate sense of place or nuance that first came into style in the 1990s. This is the kind of book where the comment "he dialed back his style" is the ultimate compliment.
