The Ballentine 2014 Reserve Zinfandel comes from the Pocai Ranch located at the southern end of Calistoga’s AVA boundaries. This estate vineyard is located in one of the warmest regions in the Napa Valley, and produces rich, ripe grapes that tend to be very fruit forward and even jammy in nature.

The 2014 reserve has an intense, deep purple color. There is a concentration of fresh berries about this wine, and a complexity to its spice. The wine explodes on the palate with big flavors of blueberries and boysenberries with a nice vanilla undertone. It’s smooth, silky and full-bodied which lingers into a finish with flavors of clove, raspberry and caramel.
