2006 Guenoc Petite Sirah: Still gentle.


dec. 23, 2009: we had this californian along with a baked chicken victoria seasoned with salt, garlic, shallots, onions and dried italian herbs. the meal turned out very well. the chicken was fall-off-the-bone tender, with strong flavor. when we popped open the guenoc, it was instantly soft. against the chicken, however, it became more tannic. that might have been a function of more time being uncorked on the table. but looking back at our previous posts, it might have been the salt on the chicken, too. 13.5 percent alcohol. $12.59 with 10-percent big red liquors case discount.
