Doug Caskey will be the first to tell you that he has one of the best government jobs in Colorado. At one point Doug was the store manager at the Boulder Liquor Mart. Now the executive director at Colorado Wine Industry Development Board, Doug shares thoughts about this week's wines, his thoughts on sake being considered a wine, and makes many recommendations on some delicious new drinks to try. If you want to know what's what when it comes to Colorado wines, hangout spots, the technicality of making wine at Colorado wineries, or just where the good grape growing areas are, ask Doug.
This week's first wine is the Carlson Vineyards NFSW white wine. People who rave about this wine note its lightly sweet, acidic, fresh and refreshing taste, but you'll have to listen to what Doug and Paul have to say for a metaphorical taste of this wine, since it's currently sold out.
This week's second wine is another red table wine from Whitewater Hill Vineyards, the 2018 St. Vincent. As described by Whitewater Hill Vineyards, 'This wine boasts red currant and raspberry notes on the nose, with delicate flavors of cranberry and apple on the palate. This wine has a subtle aftertaste of pecans and walnuts.' This wine was recognized by both the Colorado Governor's Cup and International Eastern Wine Competition (East Meets West) in 2021.
