Halter Ranch
2021 Malbec

2021 Malbec

Tasting Notes:
Traditionally Malbec is used as a blending component at Halter Ranch, however, it shines in this special offering. The 2021 Reserve Malbec is brimming with blue fruits. Aromas of blueberries and cream, cinnamon, and vanilla fill the glass. The palate is gentle and rich, segueing into a wine with flavors of berry compote, allspice, and caramel.
Pairing Suggestions:
Pair with tri-tip, glazed meats, and reduction sauces.
Aging Recommendation:
Enjoy now through 2045.
