Top 10 wines in the US press

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.”
