Colorado’s grape growing is rumored to have first started with miners in the 19th century. These miners were said to have brought the very first grapevines to this state. Nothing like being prepared!!!
This grape is said to possibly be a mutant of the popular red Pinot Noir. Growing best in cool climates, and maturing relatively early leaves this wine with high sugar levels, leads to either a sweeter wine, or, if fermented to dryness, a wine high in alcohol. Growing in small clusters upon ripening, often display a pinkish-gray hue, although the colors can vary from blue/gray to pinkish-brown. Pinot Gris is often blended with Pinot Noir to enrich and lighten the Pinot Noir's flavor. So if you love Pinot Grigio and want to try a red give Pinot Noir a chance.
This wine is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 9% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot.
This little known grape is very interesting it is a white wine grape, Roussanne originally grown in regions with a Mediterranean climate such as the Rhône region in France. In warm climates such as Texas, this grape will produce a wine with a full body, rich in flavors of honey and pear.

A medley of bright cherry and red berry fruit blended in the Bordeaux style with 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, and 6% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot.
This week’s wine comes from another young and upcoming winery; it is a 2009 Petite Sirah from Jacob Franklin Wines, Chavez-Leeds, Napa Valley. This winery has been bottling for about 14 years and is still considered to be a young winery.
My first choice is the Cabernet Franc that is barreled in French oak for around 16 months. This wine is surprisingly earthy for a young vineyard; it is full bodied with ripe berries. The finish of this wine is complex starting with a tight sharper finish then ends smoothly.
The wine pick I have chosen for this week comes from the rolling and plush green hills of South New Jersey. The wine is from Heritage Vineyards, a family run and owned vineyard. This full bodied deep, rich in color and the taste brings amazing delight with a sultry finish.
