Wine Enthusiast 90 Points
($20) Hearty, full-bodied, definitely rich and deeply colored. The chocolate and oak aromas lead to plenty of ripe blackberry and boysenberry flavors that come out on the palate and linger on the finish. It tastes big and tannic, yet the gushing fruit flavors balance everything out, and the overall impression is smooth and polished.
Wine Spectator 89 Points
($20) Full-bodied, with robust wild blackberry and blueberry flavors at the core. Smoky black tea, caraway seed, white pepper and gingerbread accents linger on the finish, where the tannins firm up. Drink now through 2025.
Mixed dark berry and spice on the nose leads into smooth and perceptively sweet flavors on the entry. The full and soft mouth feel is intense with blueberry and vanilla for a powerful yet elegant wine.
This Guenoc 2012 Lake County Petite Sirah stands up on its own or pairs well with smoky and spiced flavors, such as grilled steak or portobello mushrooms.
Located 90 miles north of San Francisco, the 23,000 acre Guenoc Estate, claiming some of the oldest vineyards in California, includes the most northwestern area of Napa Valley, all of Guenoc Valley, and the southern extremes of Lake County. From 1888 to 1906 the Guenoc Estate was owned by internationally famous actress and vintner Lillie Langtry, who vowed to make "claret of the finest kind known in the country" in her California valley and placed her portrait on her estate produced bottles of wine. Today, the George Watts' portrait of Lillie Langtry has become the famous cameo trademark of Guenoc wines. In 1981, Guenoc Valley was recognized by the federal government as a separate and distinctive viticultural area, the first appellation under single-proprietorship in the United States. Traditional winemaking techniques and utilization of the best of French oak and highest quality stainless steel equipment allow winemaker Malcolm Seibly to create wines which continue to garner championship awards in both national and international competitions.
