Guenoc Merlot 2018
Guenoc Valley lies sixty miles north of San Francisco providing a breathtaking panorama of oak-strewn grasslands, rolling green hills, craggy outcroppings and perfect volcanic cinder cones, painted with the shimmer of a dozen azure lakes. The 21,349-acre Langtry Estate is one of the largest contiguous private land holdings in California, and among the most beautiful. The 2017 growing season was ideal. Long hang times resulted in complex tannin structure and bright acidity. The Guenoc (GWEN-NOK) Merlot is medium to full bodied with lingering flavours of chocolate, black fruits and bold, tart raspberries. The finish is dry, yet filled with fresh fruits. Pair this wonderful red wine with barbecued pork chops or ribs and your favourite tangy sauce.
