Guenoc Red Bordeaux Blend North Coast Victorian Claret 2010
Always a winner for top value to price! Under $10 a bottle and drinks like much more. This vintage has some strong eucalyptus on the nose. Aromas of cassis, red and blackberry, kirsch and some oak vanilla. It's a ripe, rich and lush blend. Rich berry flavors, cassis and some anise notes. Also some baked bread notes. Lovely berry tart finish. 3/10/12
Guenoc really knocked this one out of the park, especially considering I paid a meager $8.99 for a 750. Light/Medium body with pronounced dark cherry and a generous smattering of cocoa. Bring this to any party or share amongst your friends with confidence. 88 Points.
I love this claret. Best bottle of wine under ten bucks that I've had in a long time. $7.99 is a great price for great wine. Generous dark fruit on a mid-medium nose. Beautifull dry leathery, tarry, almost jammy but not quite body, and a long inviting finish that begs for another taste. Let this one breathe out for 20 or 30 minutes and you will be very happy. I hope there is more in the store.
Still love this for under $9, a great Bordeaux style blend. France vs. US Tasting- Schreiner's Winers 1/8/10
Definately worth the 4 glasses both in value and in overall enojoyment. pours a medium ruby/purple with slight legs. light oak and subtle mineral quality on the nose, light vanilla on the first grasp of taste then along come the superbly ripe raspberry and strawberry notes, well rounded by a subtle but good earthy tone. finishes silkt smooth. sell a ton at the wine shop where i work, people love this wine and come back for it again and again, as do i. paired it with a porterhouse last night. exquisite.
After trying the Guenoc Victorian Claret for the first time I purchased more bottles at $8.49. If you can find a better Bordeaux-type blend for the money you'd better buy it. The color is a dark garnet and is quite spectacular. It is one of the nicest looking wines that I have seen in quite a while. The wine has an aroma of cherry and chocolate. It is luxurious and soft on the palate. There is a distinct cherry and strawberry taste throughout. The finish is long and smooth.
jammy, raspberry, great bordeaux knockoff
