Halter Ranch 2016 Ancestor
Our flagship wine, Ancestor, is our Bordeaux-style reserve blend, and a homage to the Ancestor Tree, the largest Coast Live Oak on record. Carefully selected barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot were blended for this Cuvée which offers aromas of berry compote and baking spices. Rich and powerful on the palate, 2016 Ancestor, displays flavors of boysenberry, cassis, and graphite with a long, silky mouthfeel that leads to a well-structured finish. Ancestor pairs well with beef, lamb, and game. Enjoy now, or set aside for a special occasion, as this wine will develop beautifully for years to come
