Tasting Notes

Intensity of color, rich black and brambly fruits, vanilla bean and roasting coffee aromatics are complemented by remarkable approachability. The wine is crafted to unleash dark and luscious characteristics, while managing tannins to deliver an opulent and juicy Petite Sirah. This lush yet easy-drinking wine provided intense berry character with superb texture.

Winemaker Notes

Nina’s Cuvée Petite Sirah honors our founder’s daughter-in-law, Giovanina Ferrario Concannon, who came from Italy to visit California in 1919, met Joseph Concannon and decided to stay. Nina was an integral part of the winery, an excellent hostess, adored wife and mother. The grapes for her wine come from block 12 on the Concannon estate, planted over 40 years ago with wonderful old vine character - low yield, small berries, dense flavors and unique maturity profiles, making for an intensely flavored wine.
