2010 Langtry Estate Petite Sirah Port, Serpentine Meadow, Guenoc Valley AVA (375ml)
Petite Sirah is a fantastic variety to produce Guenoc Port wine. Aged for over four and a half years in neutral oak barrels, the 2010 Serpentine Meadow has sultry and spicy characteristics. This Port is Ruby in color and begins with aromas of dried cranberry and white pepper encased in cocoa. On the palate dark fruit and cloves accompany influences of smoky oak followed by a lingering coating sweetness.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this wine with dark chocolate covered pomegranate.
100% Petite Sirah
55 months in French and American Oak
This five acre block takes its name from solidified magma, high in magnesium content, fractured to form the devigorating soils found here. Long a source of remarkable Petite Sirah, this moderately dense planting creates small vines, clusters and berries that are deeply hued and offer lovely blackberry flavors, unusually polished tannins and exquisite balance.
