Ballentine’s 2017 ‘Maple Station’ Red Wine is comprised of 74% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petite Sirah, 4.5% Lagrein, and 3.5% Malbec, all sourced from two estate locations: Betty’s Vineyard in St. Helena and Pocai Vineyard in Calistoga.
The wine is named for an old train station that was once located near Calistoga, where Betty (Pocai) Ballentine used to deliver grapes with her grandfather in the early 1900s. Although the station no longer stands, it is honored with this historical blend that represents the authentic flavors of Napa Valley. A floral bouquet is followed by fruit forward notes of raspberries, cherry liquor, red licorice, mocha and cassis. It finishes with vanilla and lush dark chocolate ganache. A fun, easy-to-enjoy, red wine!
