2007 Concannon Central Coast Petite Sirah

2007 Concannon Central Coast Petite SirahPrice: $6.99 @ Trader Joe’s

What They Said:

Per Concannon “Bright blackberry and raspberry fruit aromas and flavors mingle with hints of nutmeg and toasty oak. Full body and nice complexity.”

What I Think:

Warm fruit and barrel spice on the nose. In the mouth you are greeted with under ripe, juicy blueberry flavors. This one could use just a little more depth or a touch more fruit as acidity leaves the mid-palate a bit tart. The finish is dry and toasty with chewy soft tannins that linger on. Not the rich flavor profile I’ve come to expect from a Petite Sirah but well made and fairly priced at $7. Just lacking that little something to get me to pull the trigger on buying this one again.

Rating: 12th Bottle

  1. The Concannon Petite Sirah was the pick of the week in my store a couple of weeks ago. I was eating at a restaurant and got a glass of this wine. When I got the bill I saw that the glass was $8. I said to myself, “We carries this for $7 at my work!”. I hate when that happens.

    • I hate when that happens as well! The other day I was at a restaurant and saw the Santa Barbara Landing Chard going for $28 a bottle versus $4 at TJ’s. I had a hard time keeping my mouth shut when the couple next to us ordered it…

  2. Yeah, my Crew really liked it too.
    It’s a bit lighter, less chewy and much less expensvie than the Reserve Livermore Valley ($38: Oh so good) This one is great for BBQ & burgers though, especially at the price point.

  3. I think that’s a TJ’s exclusive, in which case that would be illegal even if it was a reasonable price. I’m sure it happens with Shaw and others all the time.
