The 2010 Guenoc North Coast Victorian Claret is a complex blend of our award winning wines. Dark ruby in color, the wine has a wonderful fruity nose bringing on black cherry, plum, and blueberry aromas. Rich and soft on the palate, the hints of vanilla and nutmeg, from ageing in 50% American and French Oak, add to the complexity and the long smooth finish.
The wine pairs well with any meat dish or just on its own.
Blend: 59% Merlot, 18% Syrah, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petite Sirah, 2% Cabernet Franc

This wine is simply divine! Both I and my good friend are vegetarians so we paired the wine with an assortment of cheeses and grapes and pears. This wine's natural fruitiness, (without being sweet) made the perfect compliment to our meal. I'm a fan of red wines that are mellow but my friend doesn't like reds and she loved it so much that she saved the bottle so that she could find it herself. That's saying alot!
Smooth & Supple
Had a different vintage of this and really enjoyed. The 2010 is much less bold and not nearly as interesting. It still a good wine, but would not recommend for this price point.
