I'm trying to figure out some appetizer ideas for a dinner party which involves wine tasting. I'd like suggestions that would accompany a Guenoc wine please. thanks
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.
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.
