Comprised of our winemaking staff’s picks of the best berries, from the most ideal sites, Ancestor is typically a Bordeaux leaning blend, often including a small to medium sized portion of Syrah. This wine is meant to be delectable with food and cellar worthy for up to 15 years. The three wines included in this pack express excellently the depth and potential of the Halter Ranch property.
