Overview Concannon built its reputation on Petite Sirah, and the folks there claim to have produced the world’s first single-varietal version. Their skill at turning out dense, luscious Petite Sirah—with flavors and aromas that wouldn’t be out of place in $30 or $40 bottles of wine—certainly bolsters their claim. If you’re a fan of bold, powerful New World reds that aren’t sweet or jammy (a specialty of good Petite Sirah), this bottle should hit the spot.

Nose It’s full of black fruit, pepper, and what one blind taster described as compost.

Mouth Loads of tannins, rich black fruit, and a huge, round mouthfeel combine to form a wine that can only be described as a blast.
