"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."
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.
My wife and I entertained another couple with grilled ribeyes and this Petite Sirah brought out the flavors of the food and some great conversation. I decanted for about an hour and a half and this really opened the wine up. It is full bodied and had berries and oak on the nose. Not quite as intense as I had expected.
Disappointing...not as full bodied as I'd expect from a P.S.
