2012 Guenoc Serpentine Meadow Port, 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 2012 Serpentine Meadow Petite Sirah Port is deep ruby in color with bright and deep aromas of ripe cranberry compote, white pepper, and rich cocoa powder. The silky palate has blackberry and cloves with influences of smoky oak that complement a lingering sweetness.
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.
