Tonight I was browsing my wine bar and decided to open a bottle of Concannon Limited Release Pinot Noir 2005. I think I was inspired to purchase this wine by a story on Women & Wine Radio. I have to say that I am impressed. When I opened the wine, the first thing that impressed me was the cork. It is really quite pretty with the vineyard logo imprinted on it. But when I poured it, I noticed what a beautiful ruby colour it was, and it looked so nice in the glass. Plus, with a glass now out of the bottle, the embossing of the logo on the bottle was more easily visible, also quite pretty.
But really what counts is the taste, right? This is SMOOTH. I am sipping it and it is just lovely.
So if you are ever in the Livermore Valley, or if you come across Concannon in your local wine purveyor's establishment, I highly recommend it!!
