Ballentine Zinfandel Block 11 Napa Valley 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Meaty, dark and toasty on the nose with a nice base of old wood topped with rich red fruit compote. Nicely focused in the mouth, with fine, slightly grapey blackberry fruit on the palate in a restrained, elegant style. There’s a refreshing balance of sweetness and briar here that leads to a clean finish, showing off fresh black cherry fruit topped with a nice spice note. 89 points

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.
