W.E.P. Rating: 100%
Not too many new-world wineries can say they’ve been producing wines since the late 1800s, however, Concannon is one fo them. Based on California’s central-coast region, this winery specializes in producing wines with fruit from the Livermore valley.
Its Assemblage white wine is a blend which combines Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes – the end result is a very well-balanced white which I think a lot of folks would really get into if they had the chance to try it.

Nose: Typical grassy nose with some grapefruit on the end – very typical of Suavignon blanc. I also get some white-grape skins, apple blossoms, ivory soap. Very clean and refersing on the nose.
Taste: Floods of wheatgrass, grapefruit, some alfafa hay mixed with some hints of passion fruit, mango and kiwi. Beautiful finish with some kickin acidity which rips across the palate. This is a very food-friendly wine that also stands very well on its own. Very well balanced and a white wine I’d highly encourage you to seek out.
