Known as the wine maker’s grape for its bountiful color, flavor and tannin, we craft this Guenoc California Petite Sirah with precision. Made correctly, “Pets” becomes the benchmark for big, hedonistic wines; blueberry flavors wrapped in silky tannins… not your father’s Petite Sirah!Perhaps no other grape variety, besides the teinturies, is as much of a “giver”. Petite Sirah wants to extract all the color and tannin it has in the skins to you. The winemakers’ task is to not be a glutton and just take as much as you need. For the Guenoc California Petite Sirah as in many things, restraint is the key.
The Langtry Estate is located in the picturesque Guenoc Valley of Lake County. With over 23,000 acres of land, Langtry’s vast property spans throughout Lake County and into the northern tip of Napa Valley.
The winery itself was originally built in 1981 to resemble the old Langtry barn still standing across from the Gebhard Hunting Lodge two miles south of the winery.
