GDP's California Zinfandels

46. Ballentine Zinfandel Reserve Block 9 Napa Valley (2009)

« Prev Next » 46 of 77
Bigger, deep and fairly rich on the nose, which shows lovely wild blackberry fruit with cedary oak spice, and a little vanilla and blueberry pie spice. In the mouth, this is a touch on the sweeter side, with still nice fruit, blackberry peppered with hints of coffee beans, vanilla, and boysenberry, all topped with a streak of mocha on the moderately long finish. 89 points

They only produce 4 varietal of Reds, Merlot, Syrah, Cab, and Zin, and they don't sell anything less that 9 years old. Currently working on their 2003 vintage. They are located at 5185 Union Road, across the street from Pear Valley. The owner is from Italy, and makes his own pasta and sauce, sausage, and salami, which he serves in his restaurant, which is on site. His fresh pizza's are to die for. If you haven't been there you need to try it, his wines are soooo smooth.
