This small production wine consists of less than 250 cases and sells out quickly. It is a beautiful dark inky purple with aromas of cherry, boysenberry, a hint of olive and roses. There is a wonderful smell reminiscent of a dessert – maybe lemon cheesecake or something topped with caramelized sugar. The entry of this wine is silky smooth while the weight builds as the wine slides across the roof of the mouth finishing showing off rich velvety texture. Flavors of cherry linger on the palate for a long time while the tannins finish with a bit of bittersweet chocolate and coffee.Shop Now
Ballentine Vineyards has been dedicated to farming our land sustainably for over 100 years. Our family’s focus is on producing the highest quality grapes and wines from our vineyards and sustaining our Napa Valley traditions for generations to come. We strive to make intelligent choices that maximize our quality while minimizing our impact on the land. With the building of our winery, the family has had a dedication to preservation of our farming traditions. The winery was designed to collect the rainwater from our rooftop and be used for both frost protection and irrigation, we have been a solar powered winery for over a decade, and our latest addition is a treatment plant that allows us to recycle every drop of water used in the winery and place it back into the field to irrigate our vineyard. For five generations now we have been dedicated to seeing our ranch achieve the highest quality, and we hope to carry on farming for many more years to come!
