Description

2021 HENDRY BLOCKS 7 AND 22 NAPA VALLEY ZINFANDEL

In 1939, George and Margaret Hendry embarked on a viticultural journey, making the sprawling 203-acre Hendry Ranch their home in southern Napa Valley. Over eight decades later, their legacy flourishes across 49 distinct vineyard blocks, each boasting a unique microclimate. Nestled near the majestic foothills of Mount Veeder and bathed in the cool embrace of San Pablo Bay, fog and crisp air dance through the rolling terrain, shaping ideal conditions for exceptional grapes.

Among these meticulously tended blocks, Blocks 7 and 22 stand out. Gracing the western benchlands of Napa Valley, they are defined by their thin, stony soils. Block 7, planted in 1975, has been the very foundation of the Hendry Zinfandel since its celebrated debut in 1992. Block 22, a younger sibling planted two decades later, injects a touch of youthful vibrancy into the blend.

To capture the essence of the 2021 vintage, fermentation unfolds in stainless steel tanks, preserving the wine’s inherent freshness. French oak barrels then offer a stage for aging, where a subtle hint of spice complements the fruit’s brilliance. The result? A fresh, focused, and undeniably complex Napa Valley Zinfandel, a classic expression that unfolds with every sip. It’s a testament to the Hendry legacy, a delight waiting to be savored.

HENDRY WINERY NOTES: “Ruby to ruby-garnet in color. High, sweet aromas of cooked berries, spice and grilled tomato, evolving to floral with more air. Spicy and lively on the palate and medium-bodied, with both fruity and savory elements. Pleasantly fine textured tannins. This wine, as always, is fascinating in its versatility. Different foods will enhance the savory aspects, bringing out soy and lime flavors, while others highlight the fresh, sweet berry 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.”

I LOVE HENDRY Zins… holding the bottle, I love the ripped feeling of the label and texture… and you can just tell and feel they truly Love Making Zinfandel. I love the old-school listing of “The Blocks”, because you just don’t see that any more – This is focused, pure passion, and I’m so happy and thrilled about this huge rating and beautiful review from WE – thank you Wine Enthusiast. For me, this is my personal favorite with Slow-Cooked Ribs on the Grill (when we have the time), and we also LOVE it with Pizza Night… please indulge in a full case (while available – limited).
