Estate Wine

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 vintage is exceptionally floral and jammy with classic flavors of black cherry, clove, and fresh rose petals. It is simply delicious.

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

The Cabernet Franc from our oldest vineyard, Pocai has also become Betty Ballentine’s favorite wine. Bright red fruit of strawberry, raspberries and cherries enhance the mouthful. The structure is apparent in this young wine and is full of mocha and butterscotch notes. A combination of earth and hints of roses and pepper pull this wine together.

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

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. This is a very well balanced wine with restraint in the tannins to better show the expression of the vineyard. The 2017 is full bodied and explodes with flavor.

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.
