It is juicy but with a Southern French concentration, manifested by hints of herbs, liquorice and spice adorning a bedrock of ripe fruit, of both red and black complexion. The 2011 is every bit as good as the acclaimed 2010 and made in a similar linear style, with a shade more restraint than the overtly fruity 2009 and 2007, and none the poorer …
This was a surprise. A beautiful medium-bodied blend of Cabernet and Syrah. Nice dark fruits of blackberry, dark cherry and dark raspberry. Lovely purple-reddish color. I love blends, and this is a perfect example why. Lots of lovely fruit, with no holes in the wine, which sometimes varietal wines will give you. This was a nice, big surprise at Billsboro. A very handsome wine that begs for grilled pork chops or a small steak, or a grilled Portobello mushroom. Beautiful.

Winemaker's Notes: Deep color leads the aromatics of blackberry and forest floor. Juicy raspberry and strawberry notes marry with black pepper on the mid-palate. This smooth Cabernet finishes with supportive tannins and lingering developed fruit.

…2010, Paso Robles. 15.5% alc. 900 cases. 39% cabernet sauvignon, 35% petit verdot, 26% malbec. I'm generally a fan of Halter Ranch's products, but this wine is a disappointment. Dark ruby tinged with magenta; very intense, very concentrated, quite powerful; needs a moderating component and some coherence; lots of toasty oak, slightly over-ripe black and blue fruit flavors and sweet with alcohol; not much pleasure here, perhaps a few years aging will bring out the nuances. …
There is a record amount of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend this year and it has helped to create a lovely expression of Ch. Giscours. There is a good balance, a touch of sweetness, ripe engaging fruit and superbly integrated tannins. The length is really enjoyable too.
…good wetting of the foliage and avoiding an excess of water stress. Nevertheless, one of our plots of Cabernet-Sauvignon faced a heat stroke and we lost 30% of that crop.
Beginning of September, the maturation process was low, and the few rains of the 6th and 8th happily accelerated the phenomenon.
