Return of the King
Fans of Hendry Ranch Wines - rejoice! Hendry has continually wowed us with their amazing wines, especially their 2006 Red Blend. Well, dear Operatives, today’s Hendry Ranch Wines 2010 Napa Valley Pinot Noir might be even better.
Today’s wine shows an impeccable balance of earth and fruit, with the hints of terroir really shining through. It also has an understated elegance that many members of our tasting panel couldn’t get enough of - especially our Agent Red.
Hendry fans, today’s the day to get your hands on yet another amazing example of their amazing wines. We have a feeling, however, that you’d better act fast. Chances are today’s won’t last long…
Nearly perfectly even crimson throughout the glass, with the slightest ruby haze around the edge.
Lovely aromatics of freshly baked cherry pie and wild strawberry are joined by dried fallen leaves, warm baking spices, saddle leather, and a touch of black peppercorn.
A delicious flavor profile, with terroir elements through and through. Wild strawberry, bing cherry, and red currant are framed by sweet tobacco leaf, mushroomy earth, clove, anise, slight coffee bean, and black peppercorn.
A smooth and supple finish, highlighted by an understated elegance that shines through. Fruit, earth, and spice join together for one complete, and tasty, drinking experience.
Grilled lamb, mushroom, bell pepper, and sweet onion skewers cooked on the grill.
