2017 was a classic Russian River Valley vintage. With near-perfect weather throughout spring and summer, the grapes were able to develop beautifully. This block was picked early in the month-long harvest, before the heatwave over Labor Day Weekend. Thankfully, all of the wine was in barrel before the wildfires began in October.

Russian River Valley
Made from perhaps the most uniquely aromatic clone we cultivate, our debut vintage of Hallberg Ranch Elite smells unlike any other wine we have ever produced. Enticing fragrances of red currant jelly and red cherry mingle on the nose with dazzling white wine-like hints of hibiscus and white peach. On the palate, it is beautifully precocious, with succulent acidity and a vibrant underlying energy that makes the bright red berry and nectar flavors dance. Stunning and full of surprises, this wine is a revelation with an epically long and fascinating finish.
