Concannon Vineyard Chardonnay Livermore Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Citrus, apricot, and toasty vanilla oak on the nose. Tropical swirls of mango, pineapple, crisp citrus, and gooseberry, plus brown sugar, almond, cinnamon, nutmeg, and caramel all contribute to a rich, smooth mouth feel. The finish offers flavors of ripe, baked apple and toasty oak, rounding out the tropical fruit. Enjoy with rosemary rubbed pork tenderloin, lobster with garlic butter or grilled pear and gorgonzola salad. "BEST VALUE" -- Wine News, vintage 2004 "A winner worth double its $10 price tag." – San Francisco Chronicle, vintage 2003

They could speak, the rocks of Concannon Vineyard would tell a tale rich in history. Concannon’s treasured contributions to winemaking have positioned it as landmark winery with an enduring commitment to creating outstanding, award-winning wines. We have a history of proud firsts. We were one of the first wineries to pioneer Bordeaux and Rhone-styled wines in California. We are the home of America's first successful Irish vintner, the world's first Petite Sirah and world-class wines from our fruitful, rocky soil. As a founding family of California wines, Concannon created the hardworking Cabernet Sauvignon Clones 7 and 8, which helped plant much of Napa in the 1970s. Pioneering founder, James Concannon, began making wine in the Livermore Valley in 1883. Now, his passion for family and fine wine is evident in every aspect of Concannon Vineyard and we’re fortunate to share it with you today. Read less

Tropical swirls of mango, pineapple, crisp citrus, and gooseberry, plus brown sugar, almond, cinnamon, nutmeg, and caramel all contribute to a rich, smooth mouthfeel. The finish offers flavors of ripe, baked apple and chalky oak, rounding out the tropical fruit. This Chardonnay is made in the true Burgundy style.
