Tasting Notes

Cabernet Sauvignon makes up our largest planting at Halter Ranch with just over one-hundred acres under vine. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a classic profile with aromas of cassis and graphite. Bright and fresh on the palate, this wine has flavors of red fruits with an underlying earthiness and minerality. A strong mid-palate and well-integrated tannins lead to a long seamless finish. Delicious now, this wine will continue to develop for years to come. Pair with wood-fired pizza, braised game and roasted or grilled meats.
