Winemaker's Notes

A nearly ideal growing season for Hedges Cellars resulting in fully mature and exceptionally well balanced fruit. Growers were enthused by the great rebound following a severe crop reduction in 1996. Mild temperatures throughout the growing season provided even ripening. As for our 1997 Reserve, the extraordinary floral notes are complemented by aromas of white chocolate, coffee, and cedar.

The fine-grained tannins are beautifully integrated. Our 1997 will age well into 2010.
