Winemaker's Notes:

For many years, Cabernet Sauvignon from Block 8 has contributed to Opus One and Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve and this Block 8 Cabernet proves no less worthy. From vines situated on thin stony clays, the wine was aged for 21 months in French Oak, resulting in a rich body with layers and layers of complex flavors of black cherry, black berry, sweet red pepper, black olive and bay. The tannins are supple and accessible. A stunning and delicious wine to enjoy now or for the next ten years. (Alcohol 14.2%) 1800 cases produced.

About Hendry:

The Hendry family has been farming the same vineyard in Napa since 1939. The lessons learned in more than 70 harvests provide us with a level of knowledge and a connection to the land that is rare in Napa. The Hendry Ranch is composed of 114 acres of vineyard situated in the hills north west of Napa. This latitude in the valley experiences substantial marine influence, and allows us to grow 10 different varietals, each carefully distributed among our 47 vineyard blocks. All Hendry wines are made from estate grapes, and 2011 will be the 20th vintage of the Hendry label. Through the subtle use of oak, and restraint in ripeness, our wines are crafted to highlight the terroir of the vineyard.
