Conservancy Crimson and Clover from Concannon Vineyard was created as a tribute to Jim Concannon, the father of America’s First Petite Sirah and presented to him at a celebration of his 80th birthday which was held at Concannon Vineyard on July 25, 2011.
The name Crimson & Clover reflects pride in their Irish heritage; the clover is the traditional Irish symbol for prosperity and crimson pays homage to the strong, bright, deep red color of the blend. This wine is unique in the Conservancy tier as the first Petite Sirah blend and consists of 50 percent Petite Sirah, 25 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 15 percent Syrah and l0 percent Zinfandel. Crimson & Clover upholds the virtues of a Petite Sirah while adding rich deep berry flavors, softness and complexity.
Crimson & Clover is the first blend and the fifth wine in the Conservancy portfolio. All Concannon Conservancy wines are sourced 100% from grapes grown in precious Livermore vineyards that are protected from urban encroachment by a conservation trust that preserves the land for perpetuity. All the Conservancy wines are terroir-driven with an emphasis on balancing fruit with wine-making style. The Tri-Valley Conservancy now has over 3,100 acres.
I was very excited to receive and try out this special wine from Concannon Vineyard because it was specially made and it is a tribute wine so there is a lot of love put into it! :)
I am a huge berry wine fan so I really loved this particular wine from Concannon Vineyard. It was berry-licious! :) But it was also very unique because it had some flavors of mocha or chocolate and I have never tasted that in a wine before!
I recommend the Crimson and Clover wine from Concannon Vineyard because it is full of berry flavor but a very unique wine at the same time!
Buy It: All Conservancy wines are nationally distributed with an SRP of $15.
