"Syrah and Family" Wine Pack

Syrah is a grape you likely know well if you frequent Balistreri Vineyards or are generally an enthusiastic wine drinker. Teroldego on the other hand, is a much less famous grape. Native to Northern Italy,  it is a thick skinned, dark colored grape capable of a huge range of flavor profile. With 96% of its production existing in Italy, it is not a grape we see a ton of in the states.

"Italian Connection" Wine Pack

Yes you’re reading that correctly, the double gold 2020 Alicante Bouschet is making a celebrity appearance in this wine pack.

The Zin is still showing all of its Jammy fruit acompanied by a softness that only time can bring.  The Petite has mellowed those gripping tannins that can be so aggressive while young and is showing  more stewed berry and a balanced well rounded pallet. The cabernet on the other hand is only 4 years old…… Read More

 

"Winter Fortitude" Wine Pack

The Holidays aren’t complete without something sweet! These wines are packing a lot more than just a little residual sugar though. Each of these wines is a fortified. That means that during their primary fermentation we added high alcohol ‘brandy hearts’ (uncut distilled wine) to stop the fermentation and retain residual sugar. The 21-36 Port is an excellent example of a ruby style port and won a double gold medal at international competition. Retaining luscious fresh fruit alongside an incredibly smooth finish, it’s no surprise it medaled in competition. The port from the Stranahan barrel is a result of our long time barrel exchange with Stranahan Whiskey in south Denver. It offers a different take on ruby style port …… Read More
