Ballentine Vineyards:
Ballentine Vineyards focuses on red varietals; Zinfandel, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah. Each vineyard supports our belief that it is vital to grow only those varieties that are best suited to particular aspects of the land; soil, exposure and climate. The grapes used for our wines are all 100% estate grown on 100 acres, from three distinct vineyards in the Napa Valley. Van Ballentine personally manages each vineyard.

Their 2009 is not quite as voluptuous as their 2006. It is characterized by dusty fruit, tannin, chocolate but is fairly simple. Slight over ripe notes. Slight cinnamon. My rating-- 88.
