Balistreri Holiday Wine List

This year we have a collection of great wines that we are highlighting special for the holidays. Some old and some new but all very special. Many of these wines are very limited supply and will come off the website after the holiday season. We have also put together some curated wine packs that make the perfect gift for the newcomer or connoisseur looking to compare similarities between vineyards and styles.  Our wines are made completely naturally without the use of sulfites or other additives. Only grapes that are hand-harvested are used to make the wine. All of which are selected from high quality single vineyard sites across Colorado and occasionally California. To learn more about our winemaking philosophy, please visit our history page.

    • Brother's is back!  An exceptional vintage of Brother's Cab! This delicious Lodi grown Cabernet is full of classic flavors of red currant, plum and blackberry flavors. It also has plenty of spice with green peppercorn/ tomato leaf aromas. On the palate, it's reserved yet balanced with a terrific acidity and tannin.

    • Petite Sirah -  When we think of Winemaker John Balistreri there are a few specific varietals that come to mind, Petite Sirah  being one of them. He has always loved this grape for its intensity, lush mouthfeel, and ability to age. This 2020 Petite is no exception. John's style focuses on showcasing the fruit that the varietal has to offer, so in this 100% Petite Sirah you wont see oak or other influences. It is delicious intense plum up front and big tannin on the finish. Awesome to drink young but this wine has what it takes for the long haul. Cheers!

    • $38.00
    • A vineyard we have worked with for several years and recently renamed Lafata, it s fruit bears a dark Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose shows hints of delicious oak with coconut husk, cream, and of course black cherry. Palate explodes with velvet and cocoa, leaving behind the red fruit and swapping for ripe blackberries. A clean expression that is not overdone with oak (6 year old barrels) that keeps with our tradition in making a ripe and powerful Balistreri Cab. Enjoy!

    • Coming from the Mesa seated Avant Vineyard, your nose will find a hard time leaving this glass. Intense and pungent aromas of fresh raspberry and strawberry mingle with classic Cabernet sensations of fresh produce and green leaves in the wind. Delicious now and slightly chilled, but this wine is perfectly positioned for Fall as the palate is giving and bursting with bold fruit.

    • $36.00
    • Horse Mountain is special and those that have known and followed these wines over the years can attest. Syrah that s dark and robust, fruit forward, complex and above all else spicy with that classic peppercorn sensation! What more can be said for something we have all grown to love? Until you come across a vintage such as this. Do not sleep on this Syrah! The spice is there, subtle and layered beneath some of the fullest, round, plump fruit we ve seen from the HM vineyard. Elegant cherry, plum, and cream unfold as you venture past each swirl and sip.

    • 2020 Cabernet Franc | Beach House Vineyard

    • $36.00
    • One of the finest vintages of Cabernet Franc from a special, tiny, 2.5 acre plot! Classic nose, the aromas are intense fruit, like spiced raspberry and woodland strawberry, edged with green bell pepper and olive. Sips are evolving while some give earthy, tomato leaf, oak shaving sensations, another taste may offer deep forest fruit and rich cherry flavors. A dynamic wine to say the least! You ll find focus in this Franc s structure and tannin showing quality to age, while the carmine color, clarity of flavors, and freshness desperately urge and inch it s cork out. A youthful Cabernet Franc begging to find a glass, and ready to impress.
