Estate Wine

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.

Estate Wine


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.

Estate Wine

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.

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

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.

Pocai Vineyard

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.

Betty's Vineyard

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.

Pocai Vineyard

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.

Reserve Wines

We select the best small lots from our vineyards each harvest for our reserve wines. These lots are then blended for impeccable balance and crafted to be elegant wines for any wine lover.

Beautiful lush Napa Valley Cab! Boysenberry, blackberry, rose petals, tobacco and violets combine to join rich smooth chocolate and maraschino cherry and hints of cinnamon. The wine has a lovely complexity and roundness which reminds us of blueberry compote with vanilla and graham cracker. Toasted cedar with rosemary complement a long finish.

Primarily coming from our warmest vineyard in Calistoga, this vintage is rich and full-bodied. A new release of our Reserve Zinfandel brings elegance to this grape with complexity and balance. Big zinfandel with bright red fruit and a plush mid-palate makes the perfect segway to a lengthy finish. Flavors of raspberry, cherry, and anise compliment vanilla and fresh cracked pepper. Dark cocoa nib and lavender with hints of expresso are expressed as the bottle opens up.

Anyone unsure of if they enjoy zinfandel should try this vintage. It is not over the top with fruit or spice but displays balanced fruit nuances complimented by oak spices. This beautiful wine is smooth and savory.

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.
