Balletto with Trademark Nick Frey

Sonoma Oaks a second label for Balletto
2012 Sonoma Oaks Pinot Gris plenty of acidity.. almost sauv blanc in style

2012 Sonoma Oaks Chardonnay aged in barrel.. plenty of viscosity.. pleasant

2012 Sonoma Oaks Pinot Noir California bright fruit on the nose and palate.. dried rhurbarb and cherry on the finish

Balletto Pinot Gris 2012  slight petrol on the nose, but very light and uneventful on the palate

Balletto Unoaked Chardonnay 2013  stainless steel and steely in the mouth.. may be young but just a little too tart for my taste

Balletto Chardonnay 2012 soft oaky nose, up front tannins and pleasant finish.. good but a little pricy for the payoff

Balletto Pinot Noir 2012  cool climate. showing fruit and wood tannin.. but not overly aggressive on the finish.. reminiscent of the Sonoma Oaks finish.. dried mushroomy and earthy too
