Halfsies

Don't think of it as less wine. Think of it as more opportunities to help the Earth!

You know the old saying, sometimes less is more? Well, I think we can all agree that when you're talking about silky, surprisingly rich wine, one that's pretty, dark and supple, that's a load of B.S.

When it comes to plummy, deep, dark fruit aromas and flavors of berry, currant and cocoa, more is always more in my book. Call me greedy. But if given the choice between a little bit of Cabernet that smells like mint, eucalyptus and cedary oak and a lot of it, I'll take a lot.

Some people believe that sometimes you can have too much of a good thing. And I suppose that's the reason they came up with the half bottle concept. I don't get it myself. But I've always been one to find the good in everything. So the way I'm going to look at it is, every time I finish one of these half bottles (which is pretty often) I will recycle it. That glorious clink of glass on glass is a tip of the hat to Mother Nature. And hey, we owe it to the sassy old broad, don't you think?

2007 Hendry Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 375ml 3-Pack

The majority of the grapes for this wine (54%) still come from Block 8, one of Hendry's oldest and most consistently distinctive blocks. Pretty, dark and supple. Initial aromas are dusty and almost floral, with enticing sweet fruit. An exceptionally balanced wine, showing plummy, deep, dark fruit aromas and flavors of berry/currant and cocoa. Well-integrated oak and firm, fine-grained tannins. Delicious and approachable now, with potential for cellaring. 

2006 Hendry Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 375ml 3-Pack
 
Silky entry, surprisingly rich upon first opening, though patience is rewarded. Textbook Cabernet aromas of berry/currant, cocoa, mint, eucalyptus and cedary oak reveal themselves with time and air.  Structured, fine-grained tannins make this wine a fine match for a rib-eye steak or other rich food.

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.
