Sunset Magazine published its annual "Sunset Western Wine Awards 2008 Top 50 Wine List" in the September issue. While there are lots of wines from Napa and Sonoma, Paso Robles and the Yakima Valley, not one single Colorado wine made the list. You can see the full list here. Sunset goes on to pronounce the Wine Trend of the Year as the, "The Rise Of Great Dry Rosés In The West."
The Sunset editors write:
"Five years ago, it was hard to find a good dry rosé in this country; now it's hard to find a maker of reds who doesn't turn out a rosé too. Pinot Noir, Syrah, even Cab, and, yes, Zinfandel are all going into crisp, fruity, fabulous dry pink wines."
