Concannon Vineyard Petite Sirah Selected Vineyards 2008
This Selected Vineyard Petite Sirah is a full-bodied, rich and intense wine. It exhibits full soft 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. Our Petite Sirah is a wine that is delicious now, and also has tremendous potential if aged. Enjoy with teriyaki beef dishes, and any wild game or organically raised red meat recipes.
A little too peppery for my taste
The first thing i noticed when i poured my glass of wine was vibrant cherry and plum aromas. throughout drinking this wine i found many different flavors, all with a slight woody under-tone. This wine seemed vibrant and fruity but not acidic. This is my first taste of any petite sirah but based on what i on this one, i will be trying more of the same.
first example of petite sirah. based o n this one i will be trying many more!
Unique. Not very fruity. A little bit of dark fruit with lots of tobacco, molasses, cocoa, and lots of rose petals on the top. I really like this, but then I'm impressed by Cali reds that aren't too fruit forward. This wine is a really good example of what I love about petite sirah. Big, bold, complex, interesting. Wonderful for the price.
The 2008 Concannon Selected Vineyards Petite Sirah offers a lot of bang for your buck. The nose is a bit tight but gives off a pleasant scent of ripe berries with earthy overtones. The color is a nice deep purple, and the flavor is well-rounded and focused mainly across the mid palate, offering notes of blackberry, spice, and a hint of oak. The finish lingers for some time, leaving behind bitter traces of tannin, green bell pepper, and minerals. While this wine has a slightly sweet, approachable flavor right out of the bottle, the finish did not leave me craving more as I drank the way some red wines do.
Pleasant nose. Soft for a Concannon Petite. Vinified right down the fairway. Would compliment wide choice of food. Lingering finish turning a bit chalky. Fresh, cherry fruit with no hint of raisining. Drink now although Ph, acid and alcohol are balanced enough for some aging. By the half-case in Central Oregon $10.34 the bottle.
Three and a half glasses
