Estate Wine

Double Gold, Best of Class, San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
Our Napa Cab is becoming a to-go wine for many Ballentine wine lovers. Upon opening, raspberry jam, cherries, and strawberries accompany dusty blackberry with hints of herbaceous and savory notes. Slight tobacco and bittersweet chocolate with toasted cedar complete this wine. This wine is crafted to be enjoyed upon release but can easily hold up to aging for another 7-10 years.

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

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.

Pocai Vineyard

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.
