Hendry Ranch Tasting - Brought to you by our good friends Artisanal Wine Imports, this was the 1st Ontario tasting dedicated to the wines of Hendry Ranch.
Located in the south western part of the Napa Valley, the vineyards have been farmed by the Hendry family since 1939 (it is a multi generational farming winery).
Historically, the family’s production was sold to larger well known producers such as Mondavi, Opus One; however; over the last number of years, the family has marketed their own brand of wines.
The property is sub divided into 50 blocks so that meticulous records can be kept to ensure that ever better wines can be produced. Indeed, vines were first planted on this property over 140 years ago during the initial rise of Napa’s wine industry.
We kicked off with some wonderful Mailly champagne, then worked our way through the following Hendry Ranch wines:
2008 Unoaked Chardonnay (Napa Valley / 1300 cases produced)
2007 Pinot Noir (Napa Valley / 1100 cases produced)
2007 Primativo (Napa Valley / 845 cases produced)
2007 Zinfandel Block 28 (Napa Valley / 1530 cases produced)
2007 HRW Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley / 558 cases produced)
2005 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley / 2305 cases produced)
Truly a remarkable tasting.
