Will Noiret, Corot Noir, and Valvin Muscat become household names?

Josh, it really is exciting news. I might add that in addition to this news fresh out of Cornell, an altogether new hybrid named Marquette has recently been released over in Minnesota. It's said to create a Pinot-Noir-like red and apparently has the very favourable cultural characteristics of the mighty Midwestern Frontenac variety - a truly heroic variety able to grow happily in a continental climate.

See you over in the other thread! :D
