COLTERRIS Cabernet Sauvignon originates primarily from grapes grown in the sun and soil of Theresa’s Vineyard on East Orchard Mesa south of Palisade located in Colorado's beautiful and picturesque Western Slope. Situated in the heart of the Grand Valley AVA, this unique vineyard site at 4,800 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 to 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 2012 COLTERRIS Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Theresa’s Vineyard located on East Orchard Mesa in the heart of the Grand Valley AVA. This is the first time since the founding of COLTERRIS that we have produced a 100% varietal red Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes were harvested on October 8th through October 11th. The wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for 21 months and 1,411 cases of this release were bottled in September 2014. The wine has 14.5% alcohol, pH of 3.68, and TA (titratable acidity) of 6.1 g/L
