2015 Colorado Syrah (Avant Vineyard) $36

A dense and delicious Syrah from a longtime friend and grower. Neil and Diane of Avant Vineyards have been supplying us with Syrah grapes since 2012. The combination of soil and exposure makes for interesting Syrahs that collect more earth tones than some of our other growers. Situated on the Orchard Mesa of Palisades, CO, the vines hug a cliff-face overlooking the Colorado River. Visiting Neil and Diane’s home (which is tucked in the back, positioned between the vineyard and the bluff) you understand their love and care for the vines. Neil works the crop as well as several peach orchards, while Diane is the winemaker for their own label, Avant Vineyards. We’re happy to have this relationship with them and to continue purchasing thoughtfully farmed grapes from them.

Even and balanced aromas of dried cranberry, earth, and a hint of fatty game lure your nose in the glass. Juicy and full, allow this ripe Syrah to open up and show jammy blueberries staged over earth and gentle oak. We do recommend you let this wine breath for a while before enjoying. A tightly wound Syrah great for opening up to the air or cellaring for future occasions well into 2020.

2015 Colorado Cabernet Franc  $32   

Avant Vineyard

Cabernet Franc is back! We know how much everyone has missed    seeing a Franc in the tasting room, so we’re rolling out a new 2015 from Avant Vineyard. True and familiar expressions of classic earthy bell pepper are sure to dazzle you Franc lovers out there. But, this    vintage also brings about lightness and vigor. Those without a craving for funky Francs will be intrigued by the fresh fruit, and down-right surprising transitions this wine will take you on.

Refreshing, clean, and transparent earth tones dance over the tip of your tongue. Hints of dried red currant and flint fall to the background before pronounced cherry tannin creeps in from the finish. This Balistreri  Cabernet Franc has nothing to hide, but lots to offer. Serve it just under cellar temperature to showcase the mouth-watering light fruit, and pair it with grilled skirt steak over Cesar salad. Grab some big glasses, break out the lawn chairs, and let Avant Franc take care of the rest.

2014 Brother’s Cabernet Sauvignon  $24


          Joe Spano! A name few people who visit us know, but is very important. Joe is the mysterious “Brother”, a nickname he’s held his whole life, and second cousin to winemaker John Balistreri. Joe has 30 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon out in Lodi, and has several long rows reserved for us. Working with the hotter days and very cool nights of Lodi, the fruit we see from Brother is very different vintage to vintage and its always exciting to see what the next year will express.

This particular vintage is unique for Cabernet Sauvignon. With an abundant crop, the fruit produced a lighter, less obvious Cabernet. More fresh and floral, strawberry and rose, this Brother’s Cab delivers! A champion against spring salads and grilled chicken, it holds a vibrant acidity that is key in showing off what I call “classed up Cabs”. So much of Cabernet is just big juice bombs followed by barrages of oak. And while those are always smooth, rich and round, the 2014 Brothers is more nuanced, lively, energetic and a delicious transition into Spring.

If you’re a long time wine club member, you may remember the days when you would receive two bottles of Brother’s Cab. The 2014 vintage was superb and brought us lots of fruit, so we are sharing this offer again.

If you are a “one bottle per month” member you will receive two bottles of Brother’s Cabernet Sauvignon. If you are a “two bottles per month” member you will receive four bottles!

2015 Colorado Syrah  $36

(Talbott Vineyard)

Talbott Syrah… Seems like only yesterday we said goodbye to your deliciously spiced and fruit packed 2014 vintage.  Having won a Gold Medal at Tasters Guild International and being chosen as an exclusive red wine for the Christening of the USS Colorado Submarine, the 2015 vintage has a lot to live up to. After our first few sips, its clear this new Syrah is giving last years a serious run for its money!

Tucked high on the far east side of the Orchard Mesa in Palisade, this modest vineyard has been a rock for us – producing outstanding, award winning Syrahs every year from as far back as 2005. We find the new vintage powerfully dark in color and pallet profile. Aromas are delightfully creamy, rich with toasted coconut husk and a hint of orange rind. Texture is soft with flavors of cassis and creamy coconut on the pallet. While savoring it’s ease and lush fruit, you should notice the Talbot Syrah still holds its structure, tannin, and evenly spiced finish. Perfectly paired with venison or spring lamb! But also remember, this is your comfort Syrah. Never dive into a bottle wondering if the occasion or timings right…it always is!

2015 Colorado Tempranillo  $32

(Talbott Vineyard)

Our tasting room has so many spicy Syrahs that come and go, heavy Cabs, and the always solid Sangiovese, that the Tempranillo may get overlooked in the mix. However, since we began working with the varietal back in the 2009 vintage, our Tempranillo has become a standard amongst our core wines. The grape really works with our style and expression of fuller and fruitier, while retaining light forward approaches or sometimes spice in given years. Though Grandpa John is known for his wild and intensely framed Syrahs, these Tempranillos have become the prestigious “work-horse” around here; having won countless gold and silver medals over the years.

It’s no secret that the two of us grand-kids have an affinity for our Temps. Where Angelina likes vintages that give off more mocha, spice, and raspberry, Ray leans on the fruit dense cherry, plum, and tannic expressions. No matter the vintage and profile, our Tempranillo will rise for any occasion. The versatility alone makes for a wonderful introduction to Balistreri wines and is often a bottle brought to dinner parties and get-togethers. This 2015 shows a gorgeous color of magenta, rimmed in a ring of pretty pink. Bing cherry explodes on the pallet only to tame itself and finish smooth: balanced tannin, subtle spice, and grape skin.  We urge you to open a bottle with a rare cooked Valentines Day steak. But if you can’t wait, Super Bowl Sunday will do! We hope you enjoy this newly released Colorado Tempranillo, and make it one of your “go-to” bottles of wine! Cheers!

SOLD OUT 2015 Colorado Cabernet Sauvignon  $36

(Whitewater Hill Vineyard)

Happy New Year!

With the new vintage in full swing and the tasting room offering many amazing wines to pick from, it was hard to choose which one should kick off the New Year! While the 2015 vintage is collectively exceptional, we are really excited about all the Cabernet Sauvignons we’ll be offering from various vineyards. Whitewater Hill Cabernet stands as a staple among them.

Some Cabernets can come off a bit “teenager”. Moody, confused, lost, and you don’t always know where they’re going to go. This is not that kind of Cab! For every fresh sniff of red fruit, there is one of complexity and depth. Hints of roasted meat and toasty notes glisten over the glass. The palate is no slouch either; big, bold and packed with black cherry. However intriguing this Cabernet is, it continues to stay fresh, composed, strong, and familiar. We hope you enjoy it in youth with your favorite dishes, or several years down the road as it builds in complexity!


Have a great New Year!

2015 Colorado Syrah  $56

(Horse Mountain Vineyard)

Horse Mountain Vineyard is among the most expressive and treasured of our Syrah’s. Some of you may remember several years back, when the Horse Mountain Syrah was our signature Syrah on our tasting list. Due to only being able to produce one or two barrels of this wine over the past few years, this precious Syrah was priced at $112 per bottle. However, in 2015, we were fortunate enough to be able to produce an amble amount of Horse Mountain Syrah.

We are pleased to treat you this Holiday Season, to one of our all time favorite wines! The nose is dominated by aromas of freshly ground black pepper, while the palate is ripe, smooth and full of creamy fruit flavor. Always one of our most treasured bottlings, this Syrah is the perfect pairing for lamb or other red meat.

Happy Holidays!

November 2016

SOLD OUT 2015 American Carignan   $34

Another fantastic vintage of Carignan! Just in time for the Holidays! An often overlooked grape variety, these Carignan grapes were sourced from beautiful, old vines in Amador County, CA. And of course, crushed here in Denver. This wine is medium bodied with bright acidity and a deep richness that will compliment any Holiday meal. Magenta hues sparkle in your glass as aromas of lilac and violet compliment the dense fruit and warm spice-filled palate. The delicious finish lingers with dark berries and black plums.

Enjoy this special wine with Thanksgiving dinner and throughout the holiday season.

Happy Thanksgiving!

From all of us at Balistreri’s


October 2016

2015 American GSM   $32

This is our newest rendition of a classic blend – Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre – and these grapes just seem to fit together! This vintage is a touch lighter than last year, with a soft mouth feel. Aromas of dried currant and wet cedar evoke the first sensations of autumn. Raspberry, cinnamon spice and hint of ruby red grapefruit on the palate make this wine lively, yet rich. We recommend just sipping this GSM or pair it with a savory dinner, – herbed garlic roasted chicken, anyone?

SOLD OUT 2015 Colorado Cabernet Sauvignon   $36

(Talbott Vineyard)

This Cabernet Sauvignon from Talbott Vineyard in the Grand Valley of Colorado is the first of several exciting 2015 Cabs! The aroma is full and voluptuous, starting with hints of bell pepper, then transforming to blackberry and round blue fruit with hints of earthy cocoa. The palate is unbelievable delicious and giving, with   intense blackberry and jammy dark cherry, smoothly forming into a focused and restrained tannin. This is what huge, smooth Balistreri Cabs are all about!

We hope you enjoy this wine!

SOLD OUT 2014 Colorado Cabernet Franc   $32

(Beach House Vineyard)

July 2016

SOLD OUT 2014 Colorado Syrah   $36

(Talbott Vineyard)

Our July wine is a big bold Colorado Syrah perfect for a summer barbecue! Opulent aromas of blackberry and currant lead you into this ripe young wine.

Happy Summer!



June 2016

2015 Colorado Sangiovese   $28

(Talbott Vineyard)

This fun Sangiovese is the first release of the 2015 vintage! Just bottled, this is the perfect summer red. Aromas of cranberry and subtle earth open the palate to fresh cherry and bright grape.

The ideal dry summer wine! Cheers!

May 2016

SOLD OUT 2013 Colorado Petite Sirah   $46

(CVS Vineyard)

A super light bodied Colorado Petite Sirah!  It’s completely out of character for a Petite Sirah. These grapes survived a difficult growing season on the western slope of Colorado and were harvested in between bouts of rain in October of 2013.  The rain diluted the intensity of the grapes, and the result is a delightful red to enjoy as the weather warms up. Fresh woody aromas transform into hints of cinnamon spice and juicy berries on the palate. The finish is clean and smooth with soft tannins that linger. Enjoy on the patio or deck!

April 2016

SOLD OUT 2014 Colorado Cabernet Franc $32

(Black Bear Orchard Vineyard)

We are welcoming Spring with a new Franc!

Our Cab Franc’s are traditionally earthy wines that demand food. This one is fruitier and brighter with a pleasant acidity, making it a great wine to pair with food, but not quite as green peppery as past vintages.

A rich garnet hue invites you into aromas of black cherry, spices, and toasted oak. The palate is super bright with flavors of mulberry and raw cranberry; that seamlessly evolve into banana pepper mid-palate, and then spicy wood tannins on the mouthwatering finish.

Enjoy this Franc with a juicy steak, fatty meats, or a rich, hearty dinner.

March 2016

Brother’s Cabernet Sauvignon $24

Our March wine of the month is your choice! We have three different Cabs to choose from. They are produced with grapes grown by the winemaker’s cousin Joe Spano in Lodi, California and of course crushed here in Denver. Joe grew up here in Denver and his nickname is “Brother”. Brother has 30 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and most all of his grapes go to a large winery in California but he saves a couple rows for us and hand picks ours at the perfect ripeness to produce these classic medium bodied cabs that can be   enjoyed “everyday”.

The 2014 is new and vibrant while the 2013’s have been ageing for an extra year in the Barrels for depth and complexity, influenced by American oak and/or French oak. It’s a perfect opportunity, and fun to taste the differences.  We look forward to visiting with you in the tasting room!

2014 Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon

An old style Cabernet with welcoming fresh floral aromas, tart strawberry and earth tones that lead to pleasant food friendly tannins.

2013 Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon

January 2016

SOLD OUT 2014 American GSM $36

Our first ever blend, GSM, is comprised of three grape varietals; Grenache 24%, Syrah 38%, and Mouvedre 38%, grown in Amador County, CA. This is a common blend across the world, but is a specialty of the southern Rhone Valley in France. Grenache is said to contribute spice, red fruit, and green herbs. Mouvedre provides tannins and color to the blend, as Syrah brings dark fruit and structure.

Our GSM is an excellent medium bodied wine that boasts aromas of woody spices and flavors of red current and subtle lychee berry notes on the front of your palate. As the wine continues to unfold, sage, thyme, and tarragon are accompanied by green peppercorn spice and smooth oak tannins. Enjoy our take on this classic blend with any hearty meal!

2014 American Petite Sirah $46

Inky purple hues, deep expressive flavors, and all-around powerful, Petite Sirah is always one of our favorites! This wine boasts aromas of mocha and tobacco that invite you into its creamy palate.

November 2015

SOLD OUT 2014 American Carignan $28

Carignan is a Spanish/French varietal that has been traditionally used in blends throughout the “wine world”. We sourced the grapes for this 100% Carignan from Cooper Vineyards in Amador County California. It’s the second vintage of Balistreri Carignan from this vineyard and we hope to continue making it for years to come.

We chose this wine for November because it will certainly be one of our choices at the Thanksgiving table. The brilliant magenta color invites you into the delicate fresh wood aromas. It’s very light bodied yet both creamy and fresh, with vibrant strawberry and tart cranberry flavors. The beautiful acidity of this wine finishes crisp and clean with minimal tannins, making it a perfect pairing for lighter fair like turkey and even fish. We hope you enjoy this young wine with family and friends.

Oh here’s an easy pronunciation. Karen-Yawn 🙂

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at Balistreri’s

A luscious Sangiovese, this wine sure is a crowd pleaser! With its light to medium body, it’s great to sip on its own or pair with food.

Pour this wine at your next dinner party and your guests won’t be disappointed.

September 2015

SOLD OUT 2014 Little Feet Merlot $26

It’s September already! And that means it’s time to release the new 2014 Little Feet Merlot, which was stomped by kids at last year’s   Festival Italiano.

Due to dry freeze on the Western Slope of Colorado in 2014, this       release of our Little Feet Merlot features grapes from Lodi, California which is located on the northern edge of the San Joaquin Valley east of San Francisco Bay in the Central Valley. As always, the grapes were harvested by hand, and shipped directly to us to be crushed by feet at the festival.

This year’s vintage really showcases Lodi’s Climate. The warm days and cool nights of Lodi have created a wine that exhibits bold, ripe strawberry qualities balanced against fresh and vibrant acidity. The wine was aged in neutral oak barrels which preserves the freshness of the fruit while adding structure and body.

Although this wine has the structure to age several years, we believe it is gorgeous right now! Stop by the winery and give this wine a taste!

Also, don’t forget to join us for this year’s Festival Italiano at Belmar in Lakewood, Sept 12 & 13th, to have your kids or grandkids stomp the new vintage! A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Children’s Hospital.

August 2015

SOLD OUT 2002 Colorado Merlot $36
(Grand River Vineyard)

A lovely old Merlot! This ‘02 is certainly an aged treat from the Balistreri Wine Cellar! Aromas of sweet red bean, celery root, and cardamom invite you into this antiqued Merlot. The palate opens up with rustic cherry and espresso flavors while the finish satisfies with a smooth, earthy salinity. Enjoy with your end of summer BBQ!

As with many aged Balistreri wines, this wine is best decanted very gently to avoid disturbing the natural sediment that has collected on the cork and bottle over the years.

July 2015

SOLD OUT 2013 American Tempranillo

These Tempranillo grapes grown in Amador County, CA have proven to produce some of the richest and ripest Balistreri reds. Also known as Tinto Roriz, this grape is one of the grapes we use in our Balistreri Port. The stressed berries in the high appellations of the Sierra Nevada mountain range cater to our big, fruit-forward, Balistreri style.

Tart fruit aromas react to air, giving this Tempranillo creamy batter sensations over time. The pallet is bright, but with dark fruit; Italian plum, black cherries, black currents. A proper tannin structure makes for a great food pairing and one of our most well balanced wines.


June 2015
