Balistreri Vineyards – Colorado Syrah 2006

balistreri51Located in Denver, Balistreri Vineyards is a family-owned winery. Yesterday we enjoyed a Syrah wine from their winery.

Colorado Syrah 2006 is unfiltered and the color is a deep, opaque purple. Handcrafted and with 16.5 percent alcohol, this Syrah wine is spicy and fruity overall. The aroma was spicy and sweet. With a zero percent residual sugar, the sweetness is from the fruit nuances. The full-bodied mouth feel accompanied a very fruity taste with an explosion of dark fruity berries. The aftertaste was great. Someone commented the wine had an “incredible aftertaste.”

For those who enjoy wine bottles, the top is finished with white wax, which for me provides a delightful detail and experience. The label is a colorful portrayal of a barrel room with an old grape crusher that is also on the winery’s homepage website.

Note: Balistreri’s 2006 Colorado Syrah won gold at the 2008 Tasters Guild International Wine Judging.

For more information about Balistreri Vineyards, read a review of the winery on Wine Trail Traveler’s website. 

When you have the opportunity, don’t miss a visit to Balistreri Vineyards!

Cheers, Kathy
