Conservancy Crimson & Clover was created as a tribute to the father of John Concannon, Jim, for his 80th Birthday celebration that was help at the Concannon Vineyard In July 2011. The Crimson & Clover name reflects their Irish heritage- Clover symbolizing prosperity and Crimson symbolizing the strong, bright, deep red color of the wine.
I had a chance to review a Concannon Conservancy 2009 Red Table wine recently. It looked dark and luscious. The bottle says it is 50% Petite Sirah, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah, and 10% Zinfandel. I love all of these wines and I was excited to try a wine that blended all of them together.
I decided to take it with me to a friend’s party. We opened the bottle and let it breathe for awhile then settled down with a few snacks. The aroma was rich and had a hint of blackberry. In the mouth there was a lot of flavor with a velvety finish and just the right amount of spice. I would definitely call this a decadent wine without being overly zesty. It would go well with a juicy steak or a lobster. I actually loved this wine and would definitely recommend it. It’s perfect for a get together or romantic dinner and priced at $15 a bottle, you get the taste and look of a more expensive wine without spending a small fortune!
