Concannon, 2009 Petite Sirah Conservancy Livermore Valley

Concannon 2009 Petite Sirah ConservancyThis wine was recommended by Sandrea Silfven in the Detroit News, who wrote: “Could you ask for more? Intense colour, fruit and flavours combined with supple tannins and acidity. This is a fruit bomb of thimbleberry, cherry, raspberry, espresso, and dark plums.”

She added: “On the palate, the spicy, smoky oak wafts through the flavours. Like John Concannon likes to say, there is nothing petite about Petite Sirah. This is a dry, brooding dark red wine that calls out to burgers, pizzas, stews and roasts to bring it on.”
