Hendry 2015 'Hendry Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, CA, USA [375ml]

Hendry is a small estate winery located in the south-western Napa valley. 

Winemaker: George O Hendry
Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, 100%

Terroir: The Hendry Cabernet Sauvignon blocks are located on benchlands west of the town of Napa. The vines grow on thin, stony soil between 150 and 300 feet above sea level. Morning fog and strong afternoon breezes from San Pablo Bay moderate our vineyard’s climate. The vines are spaced 8’ x 10’ and cordon trained. The clone is U.C.D. 7, grafted to St. George roots. A seven-foot vertical trellis system supports the cordon and the canopy. Average production is less than 2 tons per acre.

Vinification: Warm extended maceration
Aging:  21 months in 90% new French oak barrels.
Tasting Notes: Deep ruby color almost all the way to the rim. Initial aromas of cocoa, butterscotch, dark berry and evergreen. In pre-release tasting, tannins still had a firm grip on this wine, but with air, aromas soften and deepen, and more fruit and spice emerges—in contrast to the more immediately accessible 2014 wines. Decanting highly recommended. Mouthfeel is full, tannins fine-textured, but firm, giving the wine a softly chalky texture that will marry happily with steaks seasoned with rosemary and porcini, rack of lamb, or a savory, rib-sticking, polenta and short ribs.
