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.
Spicy and creamy with a zesty prune and plumb flavors. Round and medium-bodied. A little too sweet on the finish, but extremely enjoyable.
Excellent example of the varietal. 14% syrah blended in, adds nice structure and a touch of earth.

External Reviews for Ballentine Vineyards Zinfandel Napa Valley Estate Grown
We were very excited when we found this Zinfandel. This winery takes care to find a true expression of the grape variety, using careful practices in both the cellar and the vineyard. Richly textured fruit and good balance abound in this wonderfully priced California Zin. Well done!
