Marechal Joffre so early

Just checking the grapes today in Edmonton and noticed the Joffre are turning colour already.  They flowered on July 5th and as of August 10th half the clusters are turning colour.  This is the one tremendous advantage of Joffree is that it is all but guaranteed to ripen even in the shortest seasons.  The cluster pictured below is a small one but was the best I could get a picture of.
