Romantic Wines From Halter Ranch (Paso Robles)
Description: If your honey is a dad, consider Halter Ranch 2008 Ancestor (family-owned Halter Ranch is in Paso Robles, CA; http://www.halterranch.com). The wine is named for a Coast Live Oak (quercus agrifolia) on the property: estimated to be 550 years old, the “Ancestor Oak” is largest of its type on record, a witness to the ages, and speaks nicely to dad’s role in the family. A seductive blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot, the wine has aromas of ripe black fruits, cedar, and sweet vanilla, and pairs well with beef, lamb, and game.
