    October 29, 2020 - Leaf Day - Pop and pour after standing upright on the counter for two days - may have some sediment but I only poured a glass for (hopefully) enjoyment and education. Dark garnet (opaque) core extending out to a narrow light garnet edge. Nose of damp earth, savoury herbs (almost garrigue-like), rich and ripe dark fruit, and with just a touch of 70% dark chocolate. Very smooth and velvety on the palate with dark fruit caressing the mouth. This is rich and full bodied with wonderful ripe fruit, milk chocolate, ripe tannins and bright acidity showing. Not really showing much in development at all. Savoury, spicy (white pepper?) and warm on the finish (13.5% ABV stated on the label). This is really youthful and I would have said it was a 2015 or so vintage tasting it blind. Virtually no tertiary notes except for the beautiful herbal and chocolate finish. Stunning and easily can last another 5 years. Will it improve? Probably not, but it’s not often I wish I had more bottles of something - this is one of them. This cost $20 in a wine store in Montana in 2007. Will definitely decant this wine - there’s a bit of fairly large grains of sediment in my initial glass.

    July 28, 2014 - Have lamb...drink PS. As always, Concannon drinks wonderfully. Solid balance & integrated tannins, jammy blueberry on the palate, with a good length on the finish.

    January 23, 2014 - WCC Petite Sirah Blind (Provence Restaurant, Albany, NY): [Double decanted around 4pm.] Big, ripe smoky nose. Rich in the mouth with high alcohol, but balanced. Nice. Tied for Group #3.

    November 17, 2013 - - Purple color with slow forming legs and aromas of cloves, blackberry and oak. It's balanced and has flavours of oak, prune, black currant and black pepper with a full body. Polished texture with a long finish - Give this a couple hours to open up and you will be rewarded with a beautiful, well-balanced, polished wine. Not the best but considering the price, the value is excellent. Remember, let it breathe. Oh, by the way, probably time to drink up but a couple more years in a good cellared environment won't hurt it.

    October 9, 2013 - Smooth and medium light body. Nice change of pace between pinot noir and merlot.
