Estate Wines

These wines are grown in our three estate vineyards ~ Pocai, Fig Tree, and Betty's Vineyard. Crafted to be approachable and easy to drink, these crowd- pleasing wines offer unique expressions of our winery's style. They are both food-friendly and great for any occasion.

Estate Wine

Our Napa Cab is becoming a to-go wine for many Ballentine wine lovers. Upon opening, raspberry jam, cherries, and strawberries accompany dusty blackberry with hints of herbaceous and savory notes. Slight tobacco and bittersweet chocolate with toasted cedar complete this wine. This wine is crafted to be enjoyed upon release but can easily hold up to aging for another 7-10 years.

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

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.

Pocai Vineyard

We are excited to share our Petit Verdot grapes from our newly planted block at the Pocai Vineyard.  Planted as a blending varietal for us, we are amazed by the quality and just fell in love with it. This wine showcases cassis, raspberry, black cherry, and holiday spices.  The wine is full and vibrant with racy acidity and a long finish.
