Special grapes: What makes the fruit that went into this wine extra special is the fact that the grapes were harvested entirely from conservation-protected Livermore Valley vineyards, meaning that these vineyards will never run the risk of development.
A unique blend: If you enjoy drinking wine, you’ve no doubt noticed the surge in popularity of blended wines – wines that are made from more than one type of grape – in recent years. We’ve been experimenting with blending as well, and Crimson & Clover is the perfect example of the delicious results that can occur when you combine different varietals, in this case primarily Petite Sirah, Cabernet, Syrah and Zinfandel.
Pair it: We invite you to try your hand at creating great recipes to pair with our 2009 Crimson & Clover. Will you pour it with grilled beef kabobs? Pizza from your grill? Roasted leg of lamb? If you need some ideas to get you started, check out the Concannon family recipes on our website: www.concannonvineyard.com. Cheers!
