Vineyard Notes

A pioneer in the California wine industry, Concannon Vineyard has a history of firsts. Among these contributions was the introduction of the Concannon Cabernet clone 7 in 1966 to the winegrowing community, particularly in Napa Valley. Today this clone can be found in the most esteemed Cabernet Sauvignons in the state, and Concannon continues to offer our own exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from our very best estate vineyard block. The fruit for the “Mother Vine” Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the vines of the very first planting of our legendary clone and is named to honor the “mother vine” that gave birth to a legacy.

Winemaker Notes

The 2010 “Mother Vine” Cabernet Sauvignon, Reserve is a luscious, full-bodied wine. The 2010 vintage was a cooler year, allowing longer hang time for the grapes producing lower yields and higher quality that suggests a fully structured and age-worthy wine. Fruit forward aromas of dark cherry and cocoa fill the nose while prominent flavors of blackberry, black currant, and notes of espresso dance on the tongue and lead to a smooth, lingering finish.
