Concannon is a California wine brand that’s been around for a long time. In fact, it’s roots go back over 125 years. That’s a long description for an American winery, particularly when you factor in prohibition. And with such a long description, Concannon has pioneered a number of things in California wine. They’re best known for introducing petite sirah, but they also have a description with cabernet sauvignon for which they pioneered some now widely-planted clones.
I generally like Concannon. They’re one of those brands that’s dependable and very reasonably priced. And while we’ve reviewed a number of their wines here it’s been a while since we’ve reviewed any of their cabernet sauvignon. So, let’s see what this one has to offer.
Tomato leaf, plum, black olive and herbal aromas give tis wine a nice and complex nose, which moves further than just fruit. In the mouth, it has a very nice feel, which is nearly silky. The flavors are http://1000-facts-about-wine.com led by a very ripe blackberry note, supported by black cherry and chocolate. The acidity is sufficient. It finishes relatively long with ripe blackberry and black tea flavors. The mouthfeel and ripeness of the fruit on the palate make this wine stand out in this fee range.
