2008 Halter Ranch
The fruit for this Meritage was selected from Halter Ranch on the west side of Paso Robles. Established in 1996 and located in the historic Adelaida hills, the vineyard reaches an elevation of 1800 feet. The high density vineyard is planted on the steepest, most south facing slopes of the property in limestone rich soils and is farmed using sustainable practices. This blend is based on Petit Verdot which has shown extraordinary results in Paso Robles. The addition of a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon makes this a well integrated Meritage with a clean style and a long finish.
Enjoy now through 2019.
