Concannon Petite Sirah, 1979

I am not a fan of Petite Sirah, but I must admit that it ages about as well as any. This 1979 Concannon, from a magnum, is showing no real signs of age.

Deep, dark color. Very ripe floral aromas. Also ripe and floral on the palate. Has that dustiness that is typical of Petite Sirah. But everything holds together nicely,  not only on the first night but after being stored in a decanter for three days.
