Winemaker Notes

The R.W. Moore Vineyard is located near the southern end of the Napa Valley, in the Coombsville AVA. It was planted in 1905 and is maintained in the traditional, dry farmed, head trained, and field blended style. Mike and Molly Hendry have been producing wines from this iconic Napa vineyard since 2009.

Connoisseurs' Guide
This compelling Zinfandel succeeds on a good many levels, and, if getting our unreserved nod of approval for its very generous, incisively berry-like fruit, it gets a second for its wholly exceptional, very careful composition. It is optimally ripened and hits all of the right varietal marks, and it is enriched with a neatly tailored complement of vanillin oak, yet with all of its evident ripeness and oaky extras noted, it is fruity, supple and beautifully balanced right to the end. We worry, in fact, that its uncommon polish will cause it to be drunk up too soon, because it cannot do other than get better with age.

Mike and Molly Hendry Winery Image
In 1939, Mike’s grandparents purchased 120 acres of farmland at the base of Mount Veeder in Napa. This property remains in the Hendry family today and is now recognized as the Hendry Ranch Vineyard and Winery. Mike spent many of his childhood summers working the tractors, pruning the vines, and learning about the cultivation of wine grapes and the wine making process.

Molly grew up in Orinda, California and often traveled to Napa with her family to spend time on her aunt Denise and uncle Bill (R.W.) Moore’s vineyard. Molly recalls many happy family gatherings at Bill and Denise’s property, exploring with her cousins and barbecuing on the patio.

Shortly after Mike and Molly married in June of 2009 they purchased five tons of grapes from Bill’s vineyard. In September of 2009, they crushed their first vintage of the Mike and Molly Hendry Zinfandel.

Today Mike works as the vineyard manager and director of marketing and sales for Hendry Ranch, and works with Bill Moore at the Moore Vineyard. Molly works as an attorney in downtown Napa, and assists Mike with his responsibilites at Hendry. They have both contributed much time and energy to the careful production of the Mike and Molly Hendry Zinfandel. Mike and Molly also enjoy running, hiking, fly fishing, horseback riding, gardening, cooking and playing with their yellow lab Jake.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
