Spring Wine Club Release

A Note From the Winemaker


The spring shipment features exceptional offerings from the vineyard. This year we provide you with videos that capture the essence of Halter Ranch and the wines that are crafted here. Sit back and enjoy as Winemaker Kevin Sass introduces the wines and discusses what makes this shipment unique.

2019 Rosé

REFRESHING AND TROPICAL

Our 2019 Rosé features aromas of guava, ripe kiwi and watermelon rind. On the palate, our Grenache-based blend imparts notes of tropical fruits, tangerine and pink grapefruit, with a bright and crisp minerality.

Delicious on its own, this wine also pairs well with prosciutto and melon, salmon and light pasta dishes.

2018 Grenache Blanc

RELAXING AND VIBRANT

Aromatics of white nectarine, honeysuckle, and citrus blossoms jump from the glass of the 2018 Grenache Blanc. Layers of white fruit including honeydew and cantaloupe combine with a hint of lime on the palate. Lengthy but subtle acid makes this a perfect food pairing wine!

Delicious on its own, this wine also pairs well with chicken, salads, seafood, or a relaxing afternoon.

2018 CDP

CLASSIC AND EASY DRINKING

The 2018 CDP (Côtes de Paso) contains aromas of rose petal, olallieberry, and a hint of pie crust. The entry is soft and vibrant, showcasing flavors of raspberry, dark cherry and, a touch of spice. The bright flavors segue into a clean finish, low in tannins, making this wine both brilliant on its own and perfect for pairing with food.

Pair with lamb, pork, red meat, and savory foods.

Age now through 2028.


2018 Syrah

A WINE CLUB PRE-RELEASE

Blueberries, blackberries, and baking spices erupt from the glass of our 2018 Estate Syrah. The palate is soft and rich, creating the mouth-coating texture that makes Syrah from the west side of Paso Robles so popular. The mid-palate features layers of currant, boysenberry, and a hint of caramel. Soft, light tannins make this wine ready to drink now but complex enough to cellar for the next 15 years!

Pair with charcuterie, roasted meats, and BBQ.

Enjoy now through 2035.

2018 Cabernet Sauvignon

RICH AND SMOOTH

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is brimming with aromas of dark cherry, raspberry, cassis, and a hint of toasted oak. The palate is soft and supple, with flavors of blueberry, blackberry, and a touch of caramel. The mid-palate segues into a clean, rich finish with gentle, integrated tannins.

Pair with lamb, short ribs, grilled meats, and reduction sauces.

OUR FLAGSHIP WINE

The 2018 Ancestor features aromas of olallieberry, Bing Cherry, and a hint of cassis. The entry is soft and juicy, with flavors of blueberry and ripe plum. The mid-palate is rich with texture and flows into a clean, long finish with hints of toasted oak.
