“Gold Standard” under $40 Red

The Hendry family has been farming the same vineyard in Napa since 1939. The lessons learned in almost 80 harvests provides them with a high level of knowledge and a unique connection to the land. The Hendry Ranch is composed of 203 acres situated in the hills north west of Napa, which include 114 acres of vineyard. This latitude and location in the valley experiences substantial marine influence, and allows them to grow 11 different varietals, each carefully distributed among the many vineyard blocks.  Value and great quality has been paramount for the Hendrys.

Pretty ruby color. Soft, spicy aromas of bright cherries, bitter chocolate, sweet tobacco and spice. Medium to full in body, with fairly subdued tannins. Flavors of red fruit and jam, mint and baking chocolate. After a dark, burly and brooding 2013 & 14 vintage, Blocks 7&22 again takes a more familiar, softer, spicier form – Great body, but with a silky Pinot Noir like charm

Serve with a whole chicken, roasted with plenty of rosemary, thyme, salt and garlic, would be a delicious pairing with this wine, as would pasta with sundried tomatoes, capers, anchovies and herbs—dishes high on flavor but moderate in fat.
