We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Our flagship wine, Ancestor, is our Bordeaux-style reserve blend, and an homage to the Ancestor Tree, the largest Coast Live Oak on record. Carefully selected barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot were blended for this cuvée which offers aromas of olallieberries, currants and cocoa. Rich and powerful, this wine offers dark fruit flavors and has a silky, round mouthfeel that finishes with seamlessly integrated tannins. Well-balanced, the 2014 Ancestor is an excellent food wine and pairs well with beef, lamb and game. Enjoy now, or set aside for a special occasion, as this wine will develop beautifully for years to come.

Wine Advocate The 2014 Ancestor is a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend that incorporates 22% Malbec and 18% Petit Verdot. All from the estate Halter Ranch vineyard and aged 18 months in 60% new oak, this medium to full-bodied, pure and nicely layered red offers lots of darker fruits, licorice, ground herbs and hints of leather. It has fine tannin, but is certainly already approachable, which is a trait of the vintage. Drink it through 2024.
