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, we are able to make a diverse range of wines.
This Chenin is our most local farm-to-table wine...grown, made, and bottled within 300 yards of our winery. Bright acid and mineral notes make this release an amazing food-friendly wine. Citrus and granny smith apples race on the palate leading towards a dry finish, inviting the next sip.
Very limited! Fermented dry with aromatic notes of honeysuckle and jasmine. Asian pear and Meyer lemon curd with hints of apple blossoms. This wine is light with bright acid and refreshing. Malvasia Bianca made in this style is unique and quickly became a staff favorite.
Fresh concentrated plum jam with orange peel and Campari hit the nose while the palate is teased with butterscotch, dark cherry, leather, and white pepper. Violets and blackberry are secondary notes that accompany orange blossom and tobacco leaf.
This juicy wine brings red fruit to the front. Plum, raspberry, strawberry accompany lavender, red licorice, and earl grey tea. Our medium-bodied wine balances earth notes and fruit while hints of tobacco and toast come through.
This full-bodied wine displays raspberries, strawberries, and tart cherries. Very red fruit-driven, this wine has a large floral bouquet, herbaceous components, and black peppercorn and clove spices that add to the complexity of this wine. This wine is both restrained and elegant with velvety tannins, leading to a sweet lingering finish.

What a beautiful vintage! Pocai Vineyard has a way of expressing a fruit-forward California wine but also brings large tannins that are integrated to create a powerful yet elegant wine. Black cherry, raspberry, red apple, and fig meet clove, slight olive, tobacco, earl grey tea, and chocolate mousse are all found in this complex wine. This is a big, rich, and robust wine.
