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

Russian River Valley
From its effusive aromas of blackberry, loganberry and black coffee to its luxurious tannic profile and lush intensity, the 2017 Wesley’s Reserve possesses all of the power Hallberg Ranch can muster. On the palate, a fleshy richness and robust tannins underscore the concentrated dark berry flavors. At the same time, there is a fascinating and mature aspect to this wine that reveals itself in layers of earthy coastal forest floor, fresh-cracked black pepper, cedar and savory spice. Though powerful and weighty, it still displays the elegance of Hallberg Ranch, and the proud stature of the man for whom it is named.
