Concannon Red Table Wine, Crimson & Clover, Livermore Valley, 2009
Our conservancy wines help protect California vineyard land from urban development. Growers of these wines have placed their land into a trust that preserves against development forever. Established 1883 in the Livermore Valley. Roots. Rocks. Intrigue. My Great-Grandfather, James Concannon began handcrafting outstanding wines in 1883. The majority of this velvety blend is Petite Sirah, a varietal that we were first to bottle over 50 years ago and one that thrives in the gravelly soil of the Livermore Valley. By placing vineyards into conservancy it ensures wines will continue to be crafted for future generations. We believe preservation of vineyard and agricultural lands protects our quality of life. A vibrant red blend of signature Livermore Valley varietals, Crimson & Clover joins the Conservancy tier as a tribute to the enduring spirit that runs deep in the Irish roots of the Concannon family. Bold Cabernet Sauvignon and spicy Zinfandel support lush Petite Sirah, our flagship varietal, which lends a richness and depth to this complex blend. Pair with an Irish favorite, steak and mushroom pie with a rich butter crust. -John Concannon - 4th Generation Vintner. Alc 13.7% by vol.
