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. The vines were planted in 1995 using St. George roots and grafted with bud wood selected from an old vine Zinfandel vineyard. The vines are spaced 6.9' x 5', cordon trained and spur pruned. A vertical trellis system supports the cordon and the canopy. In 2003, the median bud break in Block 28 occurred April 1. Median bloom was June 1 and median veraison was August 12. Harvest was October 2 with a yield of 2.8 tons per acre. The alcoholic fermentation was completed in approximately one week in closed fermentation tanks. The wine was pressed and put into barrels for malolactic fermentation. Aging was fourteen months in French oak barrels, 50% of which were new.The concentrated dark fruit flavors include dark berry pie, cooked sour cherries and black currant. Other aromas and flavors include black licorice, dusty earth and mineral, sweet pipe tobacco and bay. The French oak is spicy and well integrated. The wine is full bodied, with very fine tannin structure and a long finish. The alcohol is 15.1%.1350 cases produced
