Hendry Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2005
It’s so nice when you don’t have to exercise patience and strong will to age a Napa Cab, but you still get to reap the benefits. This 2005 has aged flawlessly with a lively freshness to the predominantly tertiary aromas and flavors. Black olives blow off with a short time in the glass, saddle leather, dusty dark fruits and smells of wet leaves. The tannins have faded with the decade and a half of cellaring, but they still have a lot to offer.
