Ballentine Vineyard Zinfandel 2014

ESF
9.1

Previous notes are ‘13: this ‘14 was excellent as well though noted heat, and a more traditional CA Zin flavor profile. Built for long haul w/impressive concentration & extraction- Won’t touch for at least 5 yrs or so + LONG decant — 2 months ago

Maple Station White Blend 2016

An excellent blend. It starts like a chardonnay with smooth buttery tones. Then, it gives way to a tart apple finish like a nice sauvignon blanc. — 2 years ago

Ballentine Vineyard Petite Verdot 2013

8.9

Revisiting this after 4yrs and it is coming along nicely: the color is unreal - just inky as heck w/intense concentration & stuffing. Similar profile w/improved structure. Russ Turco brings in grapes from Napa & makes wine in Door County, WI. Solid array of wines — a year ago

Pocai Vineyard Estate Grown Cabernet Franc 2017

This will be great in 10 years. Now the oak is huge and upfront and is hot with alc (15.5%). Deep dense dark cab franc. A very Napa effort. — 2 years ago
