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

What a beautiful vintage! Pocai Vineyard has a way of expressing a fruit-forward California wine but also brings large tannins that are integrated to create a powerful yet elegant wine. Black cherry, raspberry, red apple, and fig meet clove, slight olive, tobacco, earl grey tea, and chocolate mousse are all found in this complex wine. This is a big, rich, and robust wine.

Pocai Vineyard

Fresh concentrated plum jam with orange peel and Campari hit the nose while the palate is teased with cinnamon, huckleberry, red cherry finishing with a beautiful perfume. Violets and floral roses are secondary notes that accompany blackberry, red cherries and licorice. The 2017 is full bodied and explodes with flavor.

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 Reserve label is the most elevated in our Cabernet portfolio. The intertwined circles were chosen to represent the marriage of Betty Pocai and Van Ballentine and their two families vineyards and history joining.

Black cherry and fig compote with a beautiful floral nose compliment the vanilla, cedar, and blueberry pie. A hint of coffee, toasted coconut, and huckleberries balance this full-bodied wine! The perfect winter Cabernet.

Beautiful lush Napa Valley Cab! Boysenberry, blackberry, rose petals, tobacco and violets combine to join rich smooth chocolate and maraschino cherry and hints of cinnamon. The wine has a lovely complexity and roundness which reminds us of blueberry compote with vanilla and graham cracker. Toasted cedar with rosemary complement a long finish.

Described by our Assistant Winemaker Angela Carvalho as "Calistoga Sunshine", this wine showcases bright red fruit all day. Red apples with cherry and raspberry flavors create a vibrancy on the palate that makes this wine fruit-forward. Figs, toasted nuts, holiday spices, and mocha come forth on the finish. This is a medium-bodied red, that can be enjoyed now or rested for a few years.

We are excited to share our Petit Verdot grapes from our newly planted block at the Pocai Vineyard.  Planted as a blending varietal for us, we are amazed by the quality and just fell in love with it. This wine is fruit-driven and showcases a savory blackberry pie, violet, vanilla, with graham cracker notes.  The wine is big and juicy with complimentary acid and a long finish.
