Pouring another Colorado wine in this week’s episode, this time from the Infinite Monkey Theorem winery out of Denver. Definitely a wine you should check out if you are looking to try a Colorado wine. An important note though: I mention the wine is a blend of Petit Verdot, but after recording the episode I was chatting with the IMT folks and found out it is actually a Petite Sirah / Syrah blend.
The Infinite Monkey Theorem Wine
Sight: More purple than ruby with plenty of glass staining
Nose: More Earth driven than fruit driven with notes of black tea, cranberry, blueberry, dirt, green pepper, pencil shavings, and pine cones.
Palate: More fruit driven initially than Earth driven compared to what showed in the nose. Initial attack showing notes of cranberry, raspberry, and blueberry. The mid-palate transitions to a more Earthy focus with notes of black tea, dirt, and pencil shavings, and as the wine finishes I was even getting a sense of cocoa or chalkiness.
Overall I really enjoyed this wine: 89 points.
