Colterris Cabernet Franc originates primarily from grapes grown in Katie’s Vineyard on East Orchard Mesa south of Palisade located on Colorado's beautiful and picturesque Western Slope. Situated approximately 100 feet directly above the Colorado River in the heart of the Grand Valley AVA, this unique cliff-side vineyard at 4,785 feet in elevation is protected by the foothills of the Grand Mesa immediately to the southeast and by close proximity to the Colorado River directly below it on the northwest. This combination of high altitude sunlight and cool river nights produce a distinctively bold red wine, rich in color, flavor and smooth tannins. The 2013 Colterris Cabernet Franc is blended with 78% Cabernet Franc and 11% Malbec from Katie’s Vineyard and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon from Theresa’s Vineyard both located in the Grand Valley AVA. The Cabernet Franc and Malbec grapes were harvested on October 3rd and the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were harvested on October 28th through November 2nd. The wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for 10 months. It was bottled in August 2014 with a total production of 595 cases. The wine has 14.4% alcohol, pH 3.6, and TA (titratable acidity) 6.5 g/L. Katie’s Vineyard is a 4.93 acre vineyard site of which 3.1 acres are planted to Bordeaux varietals. The vineyard is currently planted with 1,016 vines of Cabernet Franc Clone #1 planted in 1989 and 2,010 vines of Malbec Clone #9 planted in 2011. The vineyard is professionally maintained Tony Fernandez, the vineyard manager for High Country Orchards and Vineyards. Tony has over 35 years experience in viticulture in Napa Valley, California and he continues to oversee the production of these vineyards.
