2006 Syrah, Halter Ranch, Paso Robles
Paso Robles and Santa Barbara County, so alike, but also so different. Lumped into the general “Central Coast” AVA, these two regions have a lot in common, but the wines coming out of each are anything but the same. Once you are familiar with that captivating “Paso” nose you will always be able to pick out a true Paso Robles wine. Halter Ranch is located on the west side of Paso Robles, which is in an area known around the world for producing top-quality Rhone varietals. Their 250 acre vineyard sits amidst a historic 900 acre ranch that captures the history and tradition of Paso Robles while showcasing the future of the area as a premier wine growing region. Enjoy the big fruit flavors and firm tannins of this wine with a New York strip steak or marinated lamb shank. 234 cases produced .
