Concannon Conservancy Livermore Valley Petite Sirah 2008
The Conservancy Petite Sirah has fantastic depth and character. It exhibits a rich nose of fresh berry fruit, and the flavorful palate shows blackberries, chocolate, mocha and plums. Subtle notes of molasses, cedarwood, and ripe mulberries are complemented by soft, creamy oak tones and a smooth, silky finish.
Plum, leather, very slight pepper, and some tobacco. This needs some time to aerate. At first, the wine was really tight and had a kind of tart cherry medicinal quality that was bitter and unappealing. But, after a little while, it showed cherry, plum, and some dried herbs.
