Wow. This is the most elegant version of Jesse’s I have ever made. This stunning balanced wine that is quite charming and boasts nuances of ripe cherry pie, dusty cocoa, black tea, sage, milk chocolate, pipe tobacco, and a toasted marshmallow and a brambly blackberry finish.
This vintage boasts juicy, high-toned aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, strawberry, rose petal, cherry blossom and pine tar followed by flavors of wild raspberry, pomegranate, plum, white peppercorn, horchata, sarsaparilla and Russian River minerality.
The Hendry Ranch is composed of 114 acres of vineyard and is situated in the hills northwest of Napa, just off of Redwood Road. This latitude in the valley experiences substantial marine influence, and allows them to grow some of the best Napa Zinfandel.
This is the type of wine that my dad loved me to make. Thus, this wine is a tribute to my dad and to Sven and Ole, who personify my dad’s fun and easy-going personality and the joie de vivre he shared with everyone he met. Cheers to Kent, the best dad to ever walk planet Earth.
