Geunoc Petite Syrah 2012, California

My Rating 88 Points.   

Price $10. 


Inky in color with a purplish rim.
Nice and fruity on the nose, with blackberries, blueberries, cherries, oak, cloves, bell peppers, licorice, vanilla, leather, chocolates, smoke, bacon, beef jerky and peppercorn.

Full-bodied and elegant, with medium acidity and Long Legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, chocolates, spices, licorice, vanilla, coffee, tobacco, light vegetables, black pepper and Cola.

Long spicy finish with soft tannins and peppercorn.

This is a nice California Petite Syrah. A Good everyday red. Nice by itself or with grilled Meats and BBQ.

Better than the 2013 vintage, and needs 2 hours to open up properly.

This 4 year old, is now Well-balanced and interesting, with nice complexity.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
