|Reverse Wine Snob reviewed this wine as follows:|
The 2008 Concannon Vineyard Conservancy Petite Sirah was excellent. Sweet blackberries and a little chocolate and pepper on the nose. The palate showed blackberries and even a bit of mocha. There's some oak coming through but not overpowering at all. Nice tannins and a dry finish. This is fairly sweet wine, but doesn't cross the line. Overall, just a really nicely balanced, full bodied, drinkable wine. We quite enjoyed it quite a bit and recommend you check it out! Definitely a wine that will find a spot in the next update of the Top 10 list.
