Review: **** $ Concannonn Conservancy Crimson & Clover Red Blend, Livermore Valley, California, 2010 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Concannon Conservancy wines.

By way of background, opening thoughts: Concannon is most widely known for its petite sirah wines.  This wine is an unspecified blend of red wines (presumably incorporating some petite sirah) from the Livermore Valley of California.

Original tasting and review : This is Concannonn Conservancy Crimson & Clover Red Blend, Livermore Valley, California, 2010, finished at 13.7% alcohol.

In the glass: Deep magenta, opaque in the center

On the nose: Poured and swirled vigorously, shows sweet, multi-leveled red berry aromatics.  From the aroma, seems like this will be full, sweet, flush and multi-layered.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact sweet milk chocolate and sweet red berries. Some tannins support the fruit and flavors.  The velvet fruit crawls up your cheeks and then slowly vanishes, completely clean.

In summary: Overall, rates four stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.  Awesome best value.
