When we bought our house in New Westminster 12 years ago, there were two grapevines in the back yard; one had a gewurtstraminer tag on it, but the other vine had no identification; the previous owner told us they were "wine grapes, no good for eating". The vine in question is very prolific, with lots of bunches of small, sweet, early black grapes with tough skins and a lot of rather big seeds. It ripened in mid-August last year, almost a month before my gewurtz, and it made really nice jelly. The juice was really dark, almost black, far deeper in color than the gewurtz. The description of cabernet franc (early, prolific, uneven ripening) fits, but the leaves are not quite right. The leaves look a bit like malbec, but the skins are too tough. The leaves look a great deal like pinot noir, but the shape of the bunch and the color don't look quite right. the leaves are almost identical to black corinth, but there are most definitely a lot of seeds. Can anyone help? Thanks.
