Guenoc Victorian Claret 2006 wine review by (PB)

This north coast Calif. wine is a beautiful magenta hue with a tight nose that is wanting to yield up spice and cinnamon with black raspberry notes, some wood, a little sweet tobacco and is really lovely but needs a few minutes to open.

Palate--hints of chocolate up front with lush dark berries and more chocolate at the rear. Tannins are sweet and almost elegant!

This is a super value Cabernet easily worth twice the $13 I paid at a Whole Foods Market. Raise a glass and store a couple bottles away.

The Guenoc Claret is one of the best values in a steak wine.

unfortunately, ours was a little sour. it'd be good to try this one again.
