Concannon 2007 Cabernet

The 2007 Concannon Cabernet Sauvignon is an entirely drinkable and enjoyable everyday wine. Purchased during the January 2010 Safeway 30% off all wine sale, we picked this bottle up for just under $8. Concannon has a rich heritage in California as one of the first wineries to pioneer Bordeaux and Rhone-styled wines and for my fellow Irishmen, the Concannon’s are also recognized as one of America’s first successful Irish vintners. They also claim to have introduced the world’s first Petite Sirah.

This wine had a fine nose, a little fruit forward but after a few moments it opened up nicely and went well as a pre-dinner beverage as well as a nice accompaniment to dinner.  If you are looking for an everyday Cab for $8 (some places have it for as low at $6) this one is a safe bet.
