LAST CALL for this Must have 95 Point, UNDER $50 Napa Bordeaux Blend

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.

Winery Notes: ”These wines were aged for a total of 18 months in French oak barrels, approximately 70-75% of which were new. In a reversal of his typical strategy, George Hendry relied on Cabernet for the base of this blend, at 48%, with the remaining varieties in equal percentages at 13% each. Opaque purple-ruby. Cabernet is prominent in the pleasant aromatics, as expected, leaning toward dark fruit, with the spice, smoke, and cedar of the oak underpinnings just detectable behind round, dried-blueberry-like purple fruit. On the palate, tannins are soft at first, gradually building.

Varietals: All Estate-grown – 48% Cabernet Sauvignon (Block 8) 13% Petit Verdot (Block 15) 13% Cabernet Franc (Block 26) 13% Malbec (Block 14) 13% Merlot (Block 13)

FMW 95 Points: “Dazzling black stone fruit and chocolate aromas jump out of the glass on impact. This Bordeaux blend offers a deep dark color, with intense aromatics and concentration. The fruit is 100%  sourced from the Hendry Estate in the Napa Valley. This Cabernet-based blend is concentrated, powerful, yet silky smooth, with a lush and creamy texture on the mid-palate offering up cacao, blueberries, and anise flavors, and its loaded flavors show intense depth,  that leads to a long but silky finish with fine-grained tannins. This wine is drinking well now and should do so for a decade.

Food Suggestions: Pair with cheeses and meats, moderately rich braised dishes, such as pot roast, braised short-ribs or a hearty beef and mushroom stew. Retains its flavor and structure with rich, meaty foods, and shows its softer, fruitier side with full-flavored cheeses. It will pair with almost anything you like with red wine. A strong candidate for the cellar, the structure of this wine should allow it to age with grace and become even more lovely and nuanced over time
