Review: 2013 Concannon Vineyard Chardonnay Monterey County
Livermore-based Concannon moves a tad upmarket with this Monterey County bottling of chardonnay from the 2013 vintage.
Immediate notes of burnt butter and baking spice are prominent, with a bit of tropical character on the back end. The body is somewhat flabby, with a caramel note on the finish followed by a light astringency. It doesn’t gel perfectly, but it’s a step up from Concannon’s lower-end production.
