Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Petite Sirah, Selected Vineyards has fantastic depth. It exhibits aromas of plum, blackberry and black cherry on the nose. Subtle notes of chocolate and molasses are complemented by carefully structured tannins and a lively finish.

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

This wine still appears to be a bit young, but it's still well developed. The color is a deep purple transitioning to a more ruby color toward the edges. The nose feels young and green, with a clear fruit aroma of blueberries and ripe plums, almost edging toward a prune. The fruit is accentuated by aromas of oak, savory spices and fresh herbs, which lend to the perception of this wine being young and "green." The taste is very fruit forward, with flavors of blueberries and raisins transitioning to a combination of tar and tart cherries midpalate.

Very nice, like a baby Stag's Leap, rich sour cherry jam and a bit of oak, not too complex, very smooth, 88 pts.

This wine is a lovely deep purple in the glass, and presents a nose of tart cherry fruit, cut grass, and hints of leather and dark chocolate. The taste is marvelously fruit forward, with dark fruit flavors and just a bit of tartness giving way to some richness of ripe plum, and earthy spice midpalate. The finish is quite dry, with very smooth tannins supporting a very modest finish.

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.

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.

Dark purple color with a huge nose of blackberries and blueberry pie. Some alcohol on the nose as well. On the palate lots of black fruit, wild berries, mocha and plum notes. Charred oak on the finish overpowers the fruit

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 flavor.
