Our Napa Cabernet Sauvignon is everything we want a Napa Valley Cab to be: caramel, cassis, brambly raspberry, black pepper, clove, smoked meats, cranberry, blackberry jam, and bacon. Need we say more!
A great Napa Cab...almost sold out!

The Wine Advocate
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. Classic big, bold Napa Cabernet Sauvignon beautifully structured with a dense purple color packed with aromas of cherry, blueberry, clove, and vanilla. Flavors of dark cherry, licorice, black currants complement the long layered finish. It will age beautifully for 25 years.
"Full-bodied and laden with black fruit preserves and earthy layers in the mouth, it has a firm, chewy frame and good long finish." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Cherry, rose petals, roasted nuts, and licorice are the first impressions of this Cabernet. 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 the aroma of cola, black tea, cranberry, and tobacco.

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.

Experience rich plum, blackberry, and eucalyptus with raspberry preserves and dark cocoa nibs with this inviting Cabernet. A lingering finish rounds out the well-integrated structure.
