Concannon Vineyard Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Livermore Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 is a polished, elegant and lusty wine with bold red fruit essence. Aromas of cocoa and tobacco fill the nose while flavors of black cherry, raspberry, and dark plum enrich the palate. Due to the mature structure and round tannins, this wine can be enjoyed for years to come. Pair with Grilled Pesto Stuffed Steak topped with Diced Tomatoes and Parmesan Cheese.

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

Luscious and elegant aromas are earthy and slightly herbaceous, full of deep dark black fruit, green bell pepper and black cherry. Explosive flavors are ripe, juicy and powerful with black cherry, black licorice, black olive, blackberry preserves, and leather. Clove and cinnamon grace the long finish.
