The Reserve label is the most elevated in our wine portfolio. The intertwined circles were chosen to represent the marriage of Betty Pocai and Van Ballentine and their two families vineyards and history joining. We select the best small lots for Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Zinfandel from our historic vineyards each harvest. These wines are impeccably balanced – crafted to be elegant, distinctive experiences for any wine lover.
Fig Tree Vineyard
This luscious wine starts with hints of citrus and green apple and finishes with crème brule. The palate is rich and full with flavors of poached pear, caramel and butterscotch. The long finish has great balance.
Last Vintage of a Ballentine Chardonnay
Our reserve Zinfandel features our ripest, most concentrated fruit from our Pocai Ranch. This fabulous Zinfandel is a favorite in our Tasting Room. Warm berry pie on the nose, and scents of cranberries and raspberries mingle with vanilla and clove. Try this Garlic Thyme Steak Sandwich recipe to accompany this delicious wine.

"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

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.
