CO Jaunt

On a brief trip to CO I drank three wines: One, a really vile Bordeaux, which I won't dignify by mentioning it; two, a white Touraine, Chais St Laurent, Lieu-dit Les Jarrieres, 2011, a spicy wine, with pronounced grapefruit and pomegranate elements, not at all bad, $10.99, not available in PA;  and Rioja Vega 2009, a Spanish red blend of Tempranillo and Granacha, with red cherry and subtle cinnamon flavors, a very pleasant wine. $9.99, three dollars more in PA.  In spite of this disparity, my overall impression was that CO prices have caught up to PA. Let's face it, my friends, cheap is dead!
