Concannon 2005 Central Coast Petite Sirah Limited Release

Very dark purple/red color. One of the most commonly-used adjectives for Petite Sirah is "tooth-staining" and it seems quite believable when viewing this wine.

Rather closed nose, aromas of black cherry and herbs.

Black cherry, berry and plum flavors, little bit of oak.

The next day the nose is a bit more open, I'd add oak to more obvious fruit smells. The oak flavor is a bit stronger as are tannins, there's something like a strong cup of tea in the finish.

Fruity and appealing, I don't regret paying $13.49.
