Grapes for the HRW series wines come from our Napa vineyard, as they do for all of our wines. The grapes we use for HRW are individual blocks from our vineyard or barrel lots that are very nice for everyday drinking, but do not have the complexity we require for our Hendry label. The production is small—often just a few hundred cases. These wines were our “around the ranch” wines before the launch of HRW, which stands for Hendry Ranch Winery.
Medium purple-ruby color. Cedary spice, tea leaves, briar, dark berries and pepper on the nose. Light to-medium-bodied, with a bright, fruit-driven palate. On the palate, flavors of cocoa, blackberry jam and strawberry. Easy drinking, moderately structured. Ideal for pastas, burgers, barbecue, chili or a meaty Bolognese lasagna. Good everyday value for those who prefer fruity but dry--not sweet--Zinfandels.
