Last July, Cornell University asked the public to suggest names for two new grape cultivars known as NY95.0301.01 and NY76.0844.24. The contest drew over 1,000 entries from wine lovers on every continent, excepting Antarctica.

While the winning names for the red and white wine grapes won't be announced until Thursday, February 7 at the Viticulture 2013 conference in Rochester, NY, two of the losers -- rather, runners-up -- can be revealed now: Colbert Red and Stewart White.

Professors Bruce Reisch and Anna Katharine Mansfield describe the wine made from the two new grapes and why Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart didn't pass the sniff test.
