If you are a red wine lover come on over. We have Merlot, Ensemble, two Syrahs, Tempranillo, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah and of course the Friday's Folly to taste - a total of eight red wines. My favorite is the Petite Sirah 2009. Barely in the bottle it already received a gold medal and my sense is that it can achieve even more recognition. This dry red has a smooth finish for its young age, earthy yet elegant with lots of flavor in the body though lighter in alcohol at 13.5% - a perfect match with food. A beef roast, simply prepared, pairs well - I like mine marbled with some fat, marinated and cooked in a crock pot until the meat is soft an flakey. I also can imagine risotto with mixed mushrooms from Hazel Dell fresh from the Boulder Farmers Market. Come by soon to check out the new wines!
