“This is a strong wine for the price, unfolding with caramelized berries, kirsch, black cassis, wet river stone and tight plum skins on the dense nose. Cooked blackberries and black-cherry jam show on the palate, where elegant graphite tannins make for a very silky, earthy wine.”

Generations of trailblazing California wine has led to the prestige and predominance of our Concannon Clones, and we are proud that now an estimated 80% of California Cabernet Sauvignon produced comes from these dynamic Clones. Concannon Vineyard is home to the renowned Concannon Cabernet Clones, 7, 8 and 11, that originated from a single “Mother Vine” our Founder imported from Bordeaux back in 1893. Today and every day, we honor the maverick spirit of our Concannon family – especially International Cabernet Day!
