Below is the January, 2007 Featured Wine for the Wines by Jennifer Cellar Club:

 

2001 Ballentine Vineyards

Integrity

Napa Valley, California


2001 Ballentine IntegrityThis bold Bordeaux-style blend is a beautiful deep garnet color. Aromas of blackberry jam, black cherry and mint dominate the mouth, with undercurrents of anise, vanilla, caramel, pepper and cream. The rich palate flavors are reminiscent of berry compote, with balanced tannins fully engaging the palate, leading into a finish of dried fruit-like quality emphasized by the bright acidity.

Aged 22 months in 50% new French Oak barrels and puncheons. The variety composition is 58% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Today, Ballentine owns 100 acres of vines spread among the Crystal Springs Vineyard at the base of Howell Mountain, Pocai Ranch between the Napa River and the Silverado Trail, and the Home Vineyard at the winery. After selling their grapes for many years to wineries, (Cabernet Sauvignon to Caymus, Cabernet Franc to Rombauer, Zinfandel to Rosenblum, Ravenswood and Mondavi) the owners decided to revive the Ballentine brand for a small production in 1992. In 1995, they built a winery behind their 100-year-old farmhouse.

Gold Medal Winner - 2005 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

The 2001 Integrity will improve with cellaring for up to 10 years.
