2006 Halter Ranch
The fruit for this Meritage was selected from Halter Ranch on the west side of Paso Robles. Here in the historic Adelaida hills at 1800 feet elevation, from oak-studded hills on steep slopes, the plantings receive ample sunshine and grow on soils rich in limestone. The blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc is a characteristic style of Paso Robles, well integrated with a clean style and bright acidity allowing a long finish.
Enjoy now through 2015.
