    • $30.00
    • Pure, and powerful this Viognier is everything great about "orange wine". It has terrific body with deeply layered notes of pear and apricot. Floral aromatics add an elegance to this otherwise full bodied, rich white wine. This is a classic Balistreri white wine.

    • 2018 American Grenache

    • $36.00
    • While some Grenache can be quite rugged, this vintage embraces the more elegant side of the varietal. Light bodied, yet complex, this has expressive and refined notes of dark cherry, baking spice and rose petal. On the palate, the wine is graceful with gentle tannins and beautifully integrated acidity.

    • $38.00
    • This forgotten grape is sourced from old vines in the historic Amador County of California. The older vines naturally create amazing concentration and purity of fruit. Even with ample ripeness, it’s still balanced, nuanced and extremely easy to drink.

    • $50.00
    • Forget everything you know about Merlot! Unless you’re familiar with the stellar track record of Lovies, this Merlot defies varietal expectations and is easily one of our most impressive Merlots. The soft tannins are perfectly balanced, and add structure to the wild and exciting fruit character. Black cherry, raspberry candy and rich chocolate fill out the flavor profile. Don't miss out on this limited production wine!

    • A classic and jawdropping Balistreri Cabernet with a full, luscious body and intense fruit. This is one of our favorite Cabernets and is sure to stand out. Even though this is young, it shows amazing maturity and depth overall. The structure is solid but pleasing with immense dark fruit character and incredible length. No doubt this is a powerful and serious wine, yet it retains beautiful balance and vibrancy.

    • This amazing cherry wine was aged for nearly a decade in the barrel before it was fortified and bottled. Amazingly complex and deep, this is a more serious fruit wine that could give port a run for the money.
