Winemaker's Notes

The 2007 Petite Sirah, Conservancy has fantastic depth and character. It exhibits a rich nose of fresh berry fruit, and the flavorful palate shows blackberries, chocolate, mocha and plums. Subtle notes of molasses, cedarwood, and ripe mulberries are complemented by soft, creamy oak tones and a smooth, silky finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Concannon has an historic stake in Livermore Valley Petite Sirah, hence the name Conservancy, and with this wine, they do themselves, and it, credit. Dry and full-bodied, it’s a peppery, tannic wine with satisfying blackberry and leather flavors. Will gradually unfold over many years."

Allowed to decant in glass for 1 hour prior to initial glass. Little fruit and a bit more tanic than expected. Even at this price point, I was a bit disappointed. Vacuum sealed and left at room temp for 2 days as I had to go out of town. Second try revealed much more fruit. Tannins still evident but this made me think that the rest of my case may be stretched out over 3 to 4 years. If you drink this now, you need to give it time for the fruit to come out.

In the words of Will Farrell as ELF....... "It's very purple-y". This is one of the most opaque wines that I have ever tried. I am certainly no expert on what a little more bottle age could do for this wine, but It may do well to sit for another year or two. Still pretty tannic. Great with the BBQ short ribs though.

Learn About Concannon Map ItMap It

A historic and once-famous Livermore winery, Concannon was bought and sold several times in the 1980's by large conglomerates that were purchasing each other. Each sale resulted in a loss of focus, and the brand suffered. In 1992 Eric Wente of Wente Vineyards saved it from the jaws of destruction by assembling a group of eight investors to buy the winery. However, Concannon...

Learn About Petite Sirah

Petite Sirah(peh-TEET seer-AH) Not So Small There is nothing petite about this grape. Petite Sirah, the result of a crossing between Syrah and Peloursin, is also known as Durif. Being the father, Syrah imparted some of its flavors and characteristics to its offspring, but the two grapes are decisively different. Petite Sirah is mostly found in California, where it gained...
