2016 Zinfandel Reserve, Hendry Vineyard, Napa Valley
New Release! The 2016 is my favorite bottling from this vineyard, thus far. This stunning Napa Zinfandel exhibits aromas and flavors of freshly ground pink peppercorn, blackberry, blueberry, caramel, cigar box, forest floor, anise and minerality. This is by far the most masculine Zinfandel I make. I am here to coax the grapes into the wines they are meant to be, and the Hendry is always big, assertive and unapologetic.
