Last year, this wine was voted a Smart Buy by Wine Spectator. When crafting this wine, we look for flavors of blueberry and raspberry syrup in the Zinfandel grapes to indicate ripeness. This estate wine is a combination of our Zinfandel blocks and is lightly blended for the perfect balance.This vintage is exceptionally floral and jammy with classic flavors of black cherry, clove, and fresh rose petals. It is simply delicous.

Single Vineyard Wines

Each single vineyard wine is a unique and exemplary representation of the vineyard block selected. Honoring the Ballentine history, we farm several different grapes well-suited to the terroir. With three different vineyards in Napa Valley, we are able to make a diverse range of wines.

Pocai Vineyard

After more than 100 years of farming experience in this vineyard, we have begun to bottle a single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Pocai Vineyard to showcase this wonderful site. This inviting wine seduces with cherry and raspberry flavors and baking spice aromas, then allows its long, lush finish to be savored.

Pocai Vineyard

Our love for Petite Sirah goes unmatched. This inky black wine is an explosion of blueberry and boysenberry. Think Sunday morning pancakes with boysenberry syrup, warm and delicious.

Fig Tree Vineyard

Stunningly rich, full-bodied, with unctious texture, loads of crème de cassis, licorice and subtle background oak. The wine is approachable now and will evolve over 10-15 years. The palette mirrors the nose, and the soft acidity and silky voluptuousness let the finish linger for some time.

Reserve Wines

We select the best small lots from our vineyards each harvest for our reserve wines. These lots are then blended for impeccable balance and crafted to be elegant wines for any wine lover.

The wine has a lovely complexity and roundness which reminds us of both blackberry pie and being in a forest. The palate of the wine is silky smooth, with diverse hints of aroma of cola, black tea, cranberry, and tobacco. This wine opens up as you drink it and this is an indication that the wine is built to age.

This luscious wine starts with hints of citrus and green apple and finishes with crème brule. The palate is rich and full with flavors of poached pear, caramel and butterscotch. The long finish has great balance. Perfect with lobster and Dungeness crab and on its own to share with a good friend.

Primary coming from our warmest vineyard in Calistoga, this vintage is rich and full bodied. Crisp citrus peel and brandied cherry hit the nose, while the mid-palate highlights ripe dark plums and blackberry compote, hints of clove and creamy spiced chocolate. This wine finished with a bourbon barrel finish and is a big full flavored wine.
