Concannon Pinot Grigio, Central Coast, 2008
Established 1883 in the Livermore Valley. Roots. Rocks. Intrigue. Since 1883, Concannon Vineyard has been handcrafting fine varietal wines from grapes grown along the Central Coast of California, a diverse region that stretches north from Santa Barbara to the San Francisco Bay. We carefully select the most ideal vineyards for growing each varietal and craft this expressive fruit into superb wines. The coastal fog blankets the grapes and protects them from too much heat...and too much cold. This allows for gradual ripening, producing aromas and flavors of citrus, melon and honeysuckle. This well balanced, crisp Pinot Grigio goes well with smoked salmon or roasted pork tenderloin. - Jim Concannon. 13.5% alc by vol.
