Concannon Vineyard Merlot Central Coast Selected Vineyards 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

From the bouquet of this Merlot emerge notes of cherry and deep blackberry, which promise wonderful flavors as it opens right up on the palate with hints of black pepper, cherry pie, and blackberry jam. The finish of this medium-bodied Merlot offers soft tannins and earthy undertones. An extremely food friendly wine, the finish is supple, and clean. Enjoy with your favorite beef or veal dish, cranberry glazed pork chop, braised leg of lamb, spinach and feta pizza, or prosciutto wrapped shrimp.

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

You know I didn't know what to think at first but then I tried a second bottle and the more I drink it the better I like it, for the price you cant go wrong and our dinner friends loved it to.

From cool-climate vineyards comes this hearty country red. It gets the job done with cherry-berry and earthy-spicy flavors, in a nicely dry and balanced package. Has the personality for everything from cheeseburgers to a sizzling steak.

This amazing value wine has many of the attributes of a far costlier Merlot. It's ripe in plum, blackberry and dark chocolate fruit, with complex but fine tannins and a rich overlay of smoky oak. Hard to believe they can release it at this price.

A smooth, easy-drinking Merlot that's perfect for an evening nightcap. Soft, almost imperceptible tannins envelop dusty red and black fruit flavors, accented by baking spices and a hint of chocolate. A consistently good value.

There sure is plenty of ripe fruit in this wine. It's stuffed with cherries, blackberries and cocoa, and is soft and gentle in the mouth.

A light red with a creamy texture and chocolate malt flavors, what you would be pleased to get by the glass at your local rib joint.

Soft and juicy, with toasty cherry and herb aromas and spicy flavors. Drink now.
