Old Timer Zin is still doing it



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.

James Suckling 93 Points: “Rather inviting aromas of cracked black and white pepper, clove and baked plum. Full-bodied with silky tannins. Spicy. Lots happening here. Very savory, but with nice, juicy red and black fruit. Good length, too. Shows restraint. Drink or hold.”

Winery Notes: “Medium ruby. On the nose, it’s soft at first, then surprisingly floral, transitioning to mouth-watering berry and notes of orange rind. Fruit and acid are in balance on the palate, with moderate levels of each. Tannins build up slowly with each sip, but are never overwhelming. Finishes with a bright tang. This wine has always been fascinating in its versatility. Different foods will enhance the savory aspects, bringing out soy and lime flavors, while others highlight the fresh, sweet cherry fruit in the mid-palate. Pair with seasoned lamb chops on the grill, lean steaks, aged sheep or goat’s milk cheeses, pasta with a braised meat ragu. Balanced and versatile. 

Vineyard: Both Block 7 and Block 22 are located on benchlands west of the town of Napa. The nine acres are between 230 and 300 feet above sea level and have thin, stony soils. The maritime climate is moderated by morning fog and strong afternoon breezes from San Pablo Bay. Block 7 was planted in 1975 to clone 2 Zinfandel. Block 22 was planted in 1995, also to clone 2
