Hendry Zin Block 28 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The concentrated dark fruit flavors include black currant black licorice and bay with hints of black pepper. The French oak is well integrated and adds a layer of toast tobacco and leather. The wine is full bodied' with very fine tannin structure and a long finish. 'Hendry Block 28 is located on bench lands west of the town of Napa. This 4.17 acre block is 160 feet above sea level and has thin stony Boomer series soils. Morning fog and strong afternoon breezes from San Pablo Bay moderate the maritime climate.

Hendry is a small estate winery located in the south-western Napa valley. Our 117 acres of vineyard lie on gently sloping terrain between 160 and 290 feet in elevation. Thin stony soils and moderate climate allow the production of a wide range of varietals. Most of this property has belonged to the Hendry family since 1939. At Hendry, we stress the importance of the vineyard, and we devote much of our time to understanding its variation on small scales. Combination of soil, climate, varietal and clone are critical, and for this reason, we have divided our vineyard into 50 different blocks, each managed separately. To us, every block is a learning experience that teaches us about interactions among these variables, and how they influence fruit composition and wine quality. Small changes in any of them can have dramatic effects on the wine. There has beem vineyard on this property for more than 140 years, and we have been farming here for nearly half that time. As our knowledge grows, our vineyard blocks evolve, and we get closer to understanding the full potential of our vineyard. Read less

One of the hallmarks of Block 28 is its dark, concentrated fruit. The natural complexity and concentration of Block 28 fruit is the reason it receives 15% more new oak barrels than the Block 7 Zinfandel bottling. Primary aromas are deep and full of berries and black currants, with intriguing notes of licorice, smoke, earth and spice. The wine is full-bodied and mouth-filling, with a long finish. Fine-grained tannins provide significant structure, making this an ideal wine with richer, meatier dishes, even barbecue. (And George’s favorite wine with artichokes!)
