I'm not familiar with Guenoc, do you have a flavor profile?

OK, checking out http://www.guenoc.com/, it appears that the name has changed and there are a variety of typical California varietals available, which ones are you serving?

 

Oh, here, http://www.langtryestate.com/index.cfm?method=pages.showPage&pageid=a78bfd60-c60c-b8c4-c690-421ee9eb0052, they describe the wines available.

Guenoc wine.  I am drinking the Guenoc Claret. It is a cab-sauv, merlot, petite sirah, with a gorgeous garnet coloring.

Flavors of cherry, plum & red raspberries tickle the pallette and as I read about this blend, hints of vanilla & caramel

are included. Yummmmy.  I am looking for appropriate appetizers to pair with this wine as well as others, such as a Malbec

from Argentina. If anyone has a clue for me to accompany a Malbec, my life would be great.  Another quandry is the Mouton Cadet

from  France. Trying to cover the gamut of whites, reds and an ice-wine for dessert.  Hope to have an enjoyable and memorable

evening for many.

 

Thanks.

First thing that comes to mind is tuna....don't know why.  Blue fin with a spice crust, searred rare.

orange zest in sauce....I'm thinking not a berry sauce.

What is your opinion of smoked salmon with Guenoc?

I am using the Claret from France.

guess it depends on how heavily it's smoked.
