2013 Guenoc Victorian Claret, North Coast AVA
The 2013 vintage was bountiful in the North Coast counties. A mild spring was followed by a long, moderate growing season. The 2013 Victorian Claret is a complex blend of our award winning wines. This wine possesses fragrant notes of dark cherry, strawberry-rhubarb, star anise and clove. Rich and full-bodied on the palate, its well-rounded tannins are beautifully integrated for a persistent finish of licorice and black pepper.
