Aromas of blueberries and graphite lead to flavors of mixed berry compote. The balanced acidity and fine tannin structure of this wine make it a good candidate to cellar for years to come.

Production Notes

Traditionally at Halter Ranch we have used Malbec as a blending component, however, with this reserve offering, the Malbec is able to shine with a little help from its Bordeaux counterpart, Petit Verdot. Malbec’s big juicy fruit combines beautifully with the structure and depth of Petit Verdot to create a balanced, delicious wine. Aromas of blueberries and graphite lead to flavors of mixed berry compote. The balanced acidity and fine tannin structure of this wine make it a good candidate to cellar for years to come.

Pair this offering with grilled, smoked or roasted meats.
