2018 Hendry 'Block 28' Zinfandel Napa Valley

$37.95

Hendry Block 28 is located on bench lands west of the town of Napa. This 4.17-acre block is 160 feet above sea level and has thin, stony soils referred to as “Boomer Series.” Morning fog and strong afternoon breezes from San Pablo Bay moderate the maritime climate. The vines were planted in 1998 using St. George roots and grafted with budwood selected from an old-vine Zinfandel vineyard on Mt. Veeder called the Brandlin Ranch. The vines are spaced 6.9' x 5', cordon-trained and spur-pruned. A vertical trellis system supports the cordon and the canopy.
Warm, dark fruit, spice, honeycomb, and caramelized sugar round out the initial aromatic profile. Medium-bodied, with satisfying flavors of baked berries and soft spice, finishing bittersweet. Bright acid, firm tannins. A medium-weight Zinfandel with enough structure for grilled meats, such as flank or skirt steak, eggplant Parmesan, roasts, braises, and pastas with meaty sauces.
