Concannon Vineyard Petite Sirah Livermore Valley Reserve Captain Joe's Reserve 2004
As America's first Petite Sirah, Concannon's Central Coast Petite Sirah is a wine lover's treat. Concentrated to deliver intense flavors from the first sip to the last delicious drop. Full-bodied, rich wine with soft, full tannins and primary fruit flavors of cherry, dark berry and blueberry. Secondary flavors of chocolate and cassis are complex with hints of toast and creamy oak. Either hide this gem away for 3-5 years or drink now. Enjoy with beef, lamb, wild game or any hearty dish.

Very jammy with some berry, but also lots of alcohol on the nose and first sip. Maybe even a little medicine-y at first sniff.
Very tasty mellow wine. smooth. I had with a pan-seared strip steak, and it was great, didn't take away from the great flavor of the steak, just a nice smooth finish
The nose on this is still fantastic, full of blueberries and blackberries and cassis. Decanted about 4 hours. May have been a smidge long, the palate's grown a bit thin, but very smooth and easy drinking. Quite solid and great QPR.
Not too much alcohol on the nose for me: Smelled sweet and like dark berries (blackberries perhaps). Beautiful dark color and a jammy taste with a little pucker. I really liked this for the price!
This is a really nice wine for its price point. It's drinkable on a warm summer day - it doesn't warm your bones like a bold zinfandel. But it has plenty of flavor and a gorgeous deep color.
