Our 2017 Zinfandel’s color has a deep purple intensity. This Zinfandel has blueberry/blackberry components and some bright raspberry spiciness. This vintage is exceptionally floral. It has classic flavors of black cherry, clove, and fresh rose petals. The palate’s nature is silky texture. Very jammy, this Zinfandel is complimented by flavors of vanilla and cranberries. The wine has well balanced acidity and an extremely long finish with lingering cherries and raspberries.

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.

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.

Fig Tree Vineyard

Stunningly rich, full-bodied, with unctious texture, loads of crème de cassis, licorice and subtle background oak. The wine is approachable now and will evolve over 10-15 years. The palette mirrors the nose, and the soft acidity and silky voluptuousness let the finish linger for some time.

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.

Primary 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 finished with a bourbon barrel finish and is a big full flavored wine.

The wine has a lovely complexity and roundness which reminds us of both blackberry pie and being in a forest. The palate of the wine is silky smooth, with diverse hints of aroma of cola, black tea, cranberry, and tobacco. This wine opens up as you drink it and this is an indication that the wine is built to age.

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. Perfect with lobster and Dungeness crab and on its own to share with a good friend.
