A Winter Tasting at Concannon Vineyard

Concannon Winery

It was the depths of winter in Livermore and we were feeling sorry for ourselves. There were clouds in the sky and the temperature was barely breaking into the 60s. Then we remembered our friends and family back east, struggling through snowbanks and sub-zero temperatures. To salve our bruised emotions we decided to further celebrate our wise decision to move to California and do some wine tasting at Concannon Vineyard.

The S&M blend is forceful, yet tender, just like the black label that dresses this lady. The wine is named S&M because of its unique blend of 60% Sangiovese and 40% Malbec. Don't let the S&M softness fool you, there is plenty to explore just under the surface. She has an elegant fruit bouquet, a mix of strawberry and cherry flavors, a rich mouthfeel, and a soft oak/tannin finish. 2017 S&M is available for $37.00/bottle.
