Wine tasting- Exclusive Tips from Wine Pro

Enjoy wine in all its Glory

By our estimates, Charlie has poured close to 1,000,000 (give or take 950k) wine samples to South Boulder patrons over his tenure at Pettyjohn’s. With this much expertise, he can tell you what the vintner primarily ate for breakfast during each harvest and whether or not the grape will be a productive member of society. He knows more wine than 95% of people with his exact birthday with the same eye color. Stop by tonight from 5-7pm and learn from the Master, which is his last name (if you hadn’t already heard).   🙂

5 Easy January Dinners


Nom nom nom


Chateau Trians Rosé- Reg. $18.99 SALE $13.99
First up for the night we have the Château Trians Rosé. A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Cinsault and 10% Syrah, this wine exhibits aromas and flavors of strawberry, cranberry and floral notes on a lengthy, refreshing finish; the ultimate thirst-quencher. Even though it’s cold and snowy out, we’ve decided that there is never a bad time for rosé and this one in particular is especially delicious. A long time store favorite, now is a great time to check it out!
Elk Cove Pinot Blanc- Reg. $17.99 SALE $14.99
Up next we have the Elk Cove Pinot Blanc. This wine is harmonious and beautifully balanced, which brings intensity, depth and detail to its layered and ripe tree-fruit flavors. Added notes of lemon zest and a dollop of honey keep the interest level climbing. A strong minerality and dryness rounds out the finish of this beautiful wine. We brought this one in right before the Holidays and it’s still one of our favorite white wines. As usual, there’s no better time to try it out than tonight!



OZV Zinfandel- Reg. $11.99 SALE $10.49 



Third up for the evening we have the OZV Zinfandel. In the glass, this wine is light plum in color with garnet reflections.  The Nose is strong and enjoyable with notes of blackberry jam, chocolate and herbal spiciness. The wine’s taste carries the aroma forward with jammy flavors and rich mocha. The mouthfeel is creamy with soft tannins. A long and lingering finish rounds out this awesome Zin, making it great to pair with food. Always a store favorite, it’s absolutely time to try this if you haven’t already!


Doña Paula Malbec- Reg. $16.99 SALE $10.99
Last up for the evening we have the Doña Paula Estate Malbec. The Doña Paula Malbec has been a store favorite for some time now. Pouring an intense violet color, this wine shows it means business from the moment it leaves the bottle. The nose is full of black fruits, violets and a touch of spice that finishes with mineral and graphite notes. On the palate the wine has great balance and freshness in the mouth, with good concentration and medium structure. A great bottle for the snow, it’s sure to warm up your evening!
