4 Barrel Gem

The Hendry family has been farming the same vineyard in Napa since 1939. The lessons learned in more than 70 harvests provide them with a level of knowledge and a connection to the land that is rare in Napa. The Hendry Ranch is composed of 114 acres of vineyard situated in the hills north west of Napa. This latitude in the valley experiences substantial marine influence, and allows them to grow 10 different varietals, each carefully distributed among our 47 vineyard blocks. All Hendry wines are made from estate grown grapes. The 2011 vintage was the 20th vintage of the Hendry label.  The Hendry’s sell 90% of their grapes to other wineries and make small batch wines themselves.

Block 13 was replanted in the early 90’s to a high-end Merlot clone.  The wine offers an  inky, dense, black cherry color.  It explodes out of the glass with chocolate, cocoa, spice and black cherry aromas.  The palate is “Cabernet full” with deep, broad black berry fruit with accents of cocoa, and a dark chocolate “edge”.  Plenty of structure for a Merlot which is very well-balanced and full in body with a long, complex finish.  Only 99 cases produced!
