Winemaker's Notes:

Dense and leathery, with earth, anise, sage, mineral, black cherry, mint and plummy flavors, turning firm and tannic on the finish. Best from 2003 through 2012. 1,280 cases made. (1280 cases produced)
My Notes:

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.
