Concannon Central Coast Merlot 2004
Red Wine - 75cl
There are notes of cherry and deep blackberry on the nose, leading to hints of black pepper, cherry pie and blackberry jam on the palate. The finish of this medium bodied Merlot offers soft tannins and earthy undertones.
An extremely food friendly wine - particularly good with cranberry glazed pork chops and braised leg of lamb.
Content - 89% Merlot / 11% Cabernet Sauvignon
Ageing - 6 months in French oak
Volume - 13.5%
Concannon - One of the oldest estates in California, the winery was founded in 1883 by an Irish immigrant, James Concannon. Since then, as a founding family of Californian wines, they have been handcrafting fine varietal wines from grapes grown along the Central Coast of California, a diverse region that stretches north from Santa Barbara to the San Francisco Bay, and from their base in the Livermore Valley. Concannon carefully selects the most ideal vineyards for growing each varietal and crafts this expressive fruit into superb wines.
