Editorial Reviews for Concannon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Central Coast Selected Vineyards
A little truffly over-ripeness greets the nose along with clear note of candied cinnamon, vanilla, and spicy red fruits. This is smooth but rather transparent in the mouth with lots of soft tannins and good acidity supporting simple and slightly cooked flavors of raspberry and cherry. The oak is playing a supporting role here as well, adding some spice and cedary character to the midpalate along with a vanilla accent note on the moderately long chocolate covered cherry finish. The tannins here are a little coarse but the flavors and texture of the wine are quite pleasant even if there is a hint of sticky sweetness here. 84pts
Four and a half glasses
Upon opening i got hints of plums and violets. Overall the wine was very smooth and had notes of plum, raspberry's, cherry's and some smokey oak hints. I liked it enough but i was actually expecting more from this one so i would probably buy this again but only if i couldn't find something i liked better.
