Hendry Vineyard Zinfandel "Blocks 28" Napa Valley 2018
The Hendry's planted this four-acre block in 1998, with cuttings selected from old vines at the Brandlin Ranch on Mount Veeder. This is not a big jammy style but there is still a lot of fruit with complex red and black berries, vanilla and powdered chocolate. Well structured with thyme, herbs, spice, and moderate tannins. A dry style, but the fruit is the main focus with 15 months of oak aging, 65% of which is new French oak.
