That Line About The Wine

Even in the realm of fantasy, Hendry wine makes an appearance.

You know that movie that came out a few years ago with those wizards, dwarves, swords, orcs and whatnot, where they all got together and went on a quest? You might remember that part where that giant scary orc shouts out "Find the halfling!" to the rest of his orc army? Well, we've got word from certain people that that's not what he's saying. Seriously! He's actually saying "Find the half-bottle!"

You see, that orc just tasted Hendry Red wine and he looooovvvvved the stuff. Couldn't get enough. That complex aroma of cherries, berries, plums, leather, and spice that are in the 2009 Hendry Pinot Noir hit his nose, and he couldn't handle not having his own bottle.

As if that wasn't bad enough, he then tried the 2009 Hendry Block 28 Zinfandel! Let me tell ya, you think the guy looks mean in the movie? You should've seen how angry he got when he realized he drank his entire supply in one sip. Boy howdy!

It's actually a shame that that one mysterious ranger-turned-king human killed him. If only the man knew that all that orc wanted was a simple bottle of wine, maybe things would've gone a little better for him..

Anyway, if that orc loved this wine so much, you can trust that you will too. Don't believe us? watch the movie again, and tell us he's not full of passion when he yells out "Find the half-bottle!"

Features

2009 Hendry Pinot Noir, Napa Valley 375ml 3-Pack

Mouthwatering complex aromas of cherries, berries, plums, leather and spice. On the palate, this wine has more ripe cherries and berries balanced by a fine-grained tannin structure. Long finish. Grilled New Zealand lamb chops would be perfect with this versatile wine. Will also work well with all of the classic pairings for Pinot Noir, from seared duck breast, wild mushroom pizza, or a cedar-planked salmon, or a even a simple weeknight roasted chicken. A surprisingly rich, flavorful wine. Decant if you have time.

The Hendry Pinot Noir Blocks 4 and 5 and 25 are located along Redwood Creek, west of the town of Napa. The elevation is between 200 and 220 feet above sea level. The soil is thin loam on a solid rock base. The climate is moderated by morning fog, and the surrounding hills protect these blocks from the afternoon maritime breeze. The St. George roots were grafted with the Dijon 115 clone, a Joseph Swan field selection and UCD Clone 12. The vines were planted between 1993 and 1998, cordon trained and spur pruned. A six-foot, modified vertical trellis system supports the cordons and canopy. Average production is approximately 2 tons per acre and harvest is usually between August 25 and September 1.

The vines were planted in 1995 using St. George roots and grafted with bud wood selected from an old vine Zinfandel vineyard. The vines are spaced 6.9' x 5', cordon trained and spur pruned. A vertical trellis system supports the cordon and the canopy.

Winery Details

Hendry

Founded:
1939
Owner:
The Hendry Family
Location:
Napa, CA

Hendry is a small estate winery located in the south-western Napa valley. Our 117 acres of vineyard lie on gently sloping terrain between 160 and 290 feet in elevation. Thin stony soils and a moderate climate allow the production of a wide range of varietals.  Most of this property has belonged to the hendry family since 1939.

At Hendry, we stress the importance of the vineyard, and we devote, much of our time to understanding its variation on small scales. Combinations of soil, climate, varietal and clone are critical, and for this reason, we have divided our vineyard into 50 different blocks, each managed separately. To us, every block is a learning experience that teaches us about interactions among these variables, and how they influence fruit composition and wine quality. Small changes in any of them can have dramatic effects on the wine.  There has been vineyard on this property for more than 140 years, and we have been farming here for nearly half that time.  As our knowledge grows, our vineyard blocks evolve, we get closer to understanding the full potential of our vineyard.
