A wine with style — in a can!
This is another excellent wine from Colterris and, yes, in a can! It is opaque, and the depth of flavors match the depth of color. Blackberry, blackcurrant, dark cherry, bilberry and some hints of coffee with an alcohol of 14.5% together make for a full red wine. It is full fruited and shows the breed of the grapes and the minerality expected from parts of the Grand Valley AVA. It presents tannins that are mild to medium, and the acid holds well for a red. The wine is compact and has some muscle, sporting a velvety texture. Once again in this trilogy of cans, it has to be called serious wine.
