What is a good Wine for Monday Night Dinner...

Today is all about Wine. Believe it or not, in Colorado we have a few WINERIES AND VINEYARDS. I have chosen one today to profile. It happens to be in my opinion one of the best in Southern Colorado. It is: The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey in Canon City Colorado. Below are a few of my favorites:

Chardonnay Monterey:

100% Chardonnay from Monterey, California. French oak aged, loaded with beautiful, ripe fruit flavors of pear, green apple, & hints of oak. Best with rich seafood dishes, any fowl, cheese or fruit.

Colorado Merlot:

100% Colorado grapes from Talbott Farms in Palisade. A beautiful fruit-forward wine, loads of black cherry, berry & spice. Oak is a subtle nuance, adding amazing complexity to this wine. Soft tannin structure with loads of luscious fruit. Drink now or age for 4-6 years.

Colorado Nouveau:

Primarily 100% Colorado Merlot, grown in Colorado’s Grande River, fermented whole berry, to enhance the bold black cherry flavor of the grape. A sweeter red wine that should be served chilled or over ice

Vineyard Sunset:

A rosè blend of 87% Colorado White Merlot and 13% White Zinfandel. Loaded with hints of citrus, raspberry, strawberry, cotton candy & watermelon flavors. Serve chilled or over ice. Label art courtesy of Paula Fasken, Santa Fe, NM

Wild Cañon Harvest:

A wonderful blend of grapes from over 100 local growers, a sweet rosè table wine. Light & fruity, serve chilled or over ice.

I have to admit that Colorado Nouveau and Wild Canon Harvest are my all time favorites. You can see their catalog here:
