Citrus, apricot, and toasty vanilla on the nose. On the palate, tropical swirls of mango, pineapple, crisp citrus plus brown sugar, almond, cinnamon, nutmeg, and caramel all contribute to a rich, smooth mouth feel.

Burgundian in style - a versatile food wine - lovely with pork, seafood especially lobster and rich salads.

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.
