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.
Three and a half glasses
Very nice wine. Well balanced, very aromatic, big berry flavor.
Dark. Yeast earthy nose with some leather and dirt. Nice balance with soft tannins. Not huge fruit bomb with good finish
