2006 Guenoc Lake County Petite Sirah: Wonderful nose, but acidic

aug. 29, 2010: we invited emilie over for a dinner that turned out very well. victoria made homemade guacamole via http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/guacamole-recipe/index.html and figs with english stilton blue cheese (with some figs without the cheese just for emilie). we had purchased a rotisserie bar to add to our grill, and greg seasoned a whole chicken with his own seasoning mix and left it on the rotisserie for 1.5 hours. we also boiled some tiny new potatoes in salt water. we got the new potatoes and the figs from the asian market on north green river.

we paired everything with this lake county californian petite sirah. the nose was very aromatic, evoking cherries and blackberries. but the texture had turned acidic. this 2006 probably just didn't hold up, since when we last had this wine, it was smooth and gentle. unknown price. big red liquors. 13.5 percent alcohol.
