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.
Primarily 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 finishes with bourbon barrels. Perfect for a whiskey fan.
Double Gold, San Francisco Chronicle Tasting
"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
