SKU #1376105 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a spicy, sublime and expansive wine, full bodied no doubt, yet brimming in freshness and complexity. It is red-fruit driven and dazzles in white and black pepper, accented by dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg. It has a long-lasting texture and richness. (VB) Inner quote mark (7/2019)

K&L Notes

The Hendry family has been farming its Napa Valley ranch since 1939 and today the property encompasses 203 acres of which 114 are vineyards. All of the Hendry wines are made with estate fruit, and blocks 7 and 22 are located on the benchlands west of the city of Napa. Block 7 was planted in 1975 and block 22 was planted in 1995. This wine is described by the winery as: "Ruby in color. Soft aromas of dark cherry fruit, orange rind, cocoa, peppers, spice and black tea. Medium bodied, with subdued tannins. The balanced palate offers red fruits, bittersweet chocolate, smoke, and bright acid. Long finish."

When I moved to California seven years ago, I began tasting through Zinfandel in earnest. Most of it was easy drinking, fruity wine, fun with pizza or a picnic. And then I tasted a Hendry Zin. Suddenly the variety had a completely new meaning for me. Grown and crafted in a serious style, this Zinfandel takes the varietal to the next level. Deep red cherry fruit with an underlying kick of black pepper marks this as a classic Zinfandel, and the structure is artfully constructed—a nice fresh cut of acidity lightens the wine, while solid, ripe tannins add bulk to the palate and position this as a great food companion. The fruit is not the cloying, syrupy style of Zinfandel, but a bright young cherry fruit, complemented by black tea, crushed peppercorn and bitter cocoa. Think grilled lamb for a pairing.
