>From other information I've seen, you probably do have black rot.  Good
sanitation helps a lot with BR on Concord - removing affected fruit as soon
as you find it, and keeping the vineyard clean, including removing all
fallen leaves that might allow overwintering of the spores.  You have to
remember, I don't see black rot here - the summers are too cool and dry in
this part of the country, so I don't know how it looks on all varieties -
only some I've seen in trips east, or in books.
