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.

A wine that makes us think "Why would anyone not love Merlot?" A medium-bodied wine with cherry cola, boysenberry, and lavender with hints of herbaceous aromas and dried fruit. This Napa Valley Merlot evolves into expresso, eucalyptus, and vanilla and lingers on the palate. Delicate and subtly nuanced, this wine is a winner.

Our Napa Cab is becoming a to-go wine for many Ballentine wine lovers. This is a fruit-forward wine, with dark fruit dominating the palate. Blackberry, blueberry, black cherry, and currants explode on the nose and palate. Hints of black olive, dark cocoa, eucalyptus complement the soft tannins and keep this wine balanced. This medium-bodied wine finishes with fig preserves and baking spices.
