The 2009 Ballentine Chenin Blanc is a dry, medium-bodied wine with a crisp, tart acidity and tangy, citrus flavors with some mineral notes. The alcohol of the Ballentine Chenin Blanc is quite strong so keep that in mind - you're better off keeping it very chilled when drinking. If you let this 2009 Ballentine warm up too much, the alcohol will become too harsh and the wine will be unpleasant to drink.
The 2006 Seven Heavenly Chards Chardonnay is a medium-to-full bodied dry wine with smooth acidity. Like the aromas, the flavors of this chardonnay are most like spiced apple pie, some butter, and perhaps some citrus notes. The alcohol can be fairly pronounced so this is a chardonnay that should be drunk well chilled.
This 2007 Pinotage from The Winery of Good Hope is a deep, dark red - almost purple in color and is reminiscent of blood at times. This full-bodied Pinotage is smooth with a strong alcohol taste, red berry flavors, and a spicy finish. Overall it's a decent Pinotage, which is commendable because Pinotage is a very difficult wine to get right.
The St. Francis Winery 2008 Chardonnay is a straw-golden color with green-tinged edges and nice clarity. The flavors of this dry, full-bodied Chardonnay are very aromatic and consist mostly of apple, pear, and creamy vanilla. The acidity is strong enough to make the St. Francis Chardonnay quite refreshing.
Although the taste of Cline Cellars' Ancient Vines Zinfadadel is rather complex, it is a very approachable red wine that could be enjoyed even by people who aren't fans of red wines generally or California Zinfadels in particular. Medium-dry with soft tannins, the smooth taste is both a little bit fruity and a little bit peppery. It's not at all harsh, given how strong the alcohol content is.
