Ancestor is Halter Ranch's Bordeaux-style reserve blend, it is their flagship wine (think along the lines of Joseph Phelps' Insignia or Justin's Isosceles), and an homage to the heart and soul of their property, the Ancestor Tree. This tree is one of the largest coast live oaks on record, and is nestled amongst the vines of block eleven. A blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Malbec, and 9% Petit Verdot, grapes were destemmed and fermented in closed top fermentors, with open pump-overs two to three times daily for an average of 16 days, then aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.

Carefully selected barrels were blended for this cuvee which offers 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.
