Lovies Vineyard

Lovies Vineyard, although quite small, produces some of the greatest grapes in all of Colorado. So, what makes Lovies so special? Well, it starts with the farming. Owned by Ken and Karen Loveland, this vineyard produces the most unique and singular fruit we work with. The grapes are typically 2-3 times smaller than most Cabernet or Merlot. This increases the skin-to-juice ratio during fermentation, thus intensifying the natural levels of flavor, tannin and acidity in the finished wine. Lovies is also notable for it’s low yielding nature. Less grapes on each vine means that there isn’t as much competition and both the grapes and stems are able to ripen fully. Indeed, each vintage the stems are fully lignified and developed, imbuing a rare maturity into the finished wine. This method of low yield farming matches perfectly with our natural style of winemaking.

    • A delicious and must have Cabernet - the 2019 vintage for Lovies wines is truly exceptional. The fruit here is deep red and very ripe. You will see raspberry and black cherry on the nose that seamlessly transition to the palate. This wine was in very old barrels which makes the fruit and terroir center stage, setting itself far away from an "oaky" Cab. That is also why the earth tones are so exciting! Chocolate, baking spices, and savory flavors offer you a velvety and rich wine. Strong youthful tannins make this Cabernet Sauvignon great to share with your Valentine or to cellar and savor in years to come.

    • This Merlot is nothing short of amazing. To have such power and elegance balanced alongside forward and welcoming fruit demonstrates what Merlot is capable of. While Merlot is sometimes overlooked, this wine will pull you in and demand your attention. Aromas of dark wild fruit dance and play alongside hints of vanilla and cream. Expecting your first sip to be heavy and rich, this Lovies Merlot splashes you with an energetic surprise of exciting juicy blackberry and fresh acidity. Then comes the power. The finish has ample tannin - great for aging or with food - tossing you flavors of powdered popping fruit and baking cocoa. This is a Merlot unlike most, and a real treat from this special vineyard.

    • Forget everything you know about Merlot! This Merlot defies varietal expectations and is easily one of our most impressive Merlots. Black cherry, raspberry candy and rich chocolate fill out the flavor profile. This is a serious Merlot and can easily compete with any Cabernet out there.

    • A classic and jawdropping Balistreri Cabernet. Although young, this 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.
