Winemaker's Notes:

Garnet shades, bright black and red cherry aromas, loads of red fruit and a full-bodied mouth feel are typical of this blend of some of the finest of California vineyards. A long, silky finish hints of elegant structure, promising excellent cellaring potential. Aged 18 months in 60-gallon oak barrels and oak casks. Perfect for traditional roast beef and potatoes as well as steak or grilled Portobello mushrooms with pepper.
My Notes:

About Guenoc Estate Vineyards:

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.
