Winemaker's Notes

"Garnet hue with a fuchsia rim. An attractive bouquet of rose petal and cherry with a hint of coconut. Soft, with accessible cherry fruit and a secondary chalkiness. Fresh, tasty finish; drinking nicely right now."
-Wine News

Concannon Limited Release Petite Sirah is an intense wine with vibrant berry fruits and a rich, full palate. The wine starts with attractive aromas of ripe berries, creamy oak and a touch of spice. This Petite Sirah is full bodied, yet it has a firm and balanced structure with hints of toasty oak and vanilla on the palate. There's plenty to sink your teeth into now as the finish is quite lasting and memorable.

Enjoy with wild game, teriyaki beef, herb-rubbed lamb or decadent dark chocolate.
