Professional Wine Reviews for Hendry Vineyards Zinfandel Block 7 & 22 2016

Rated 91 by Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of white pepper and lavender lead to a robust, meaty palate. Blackberry, graphite and oak round out the balanced, powerful foundation that's supported by firm tannins.
Rated 91 by Wine Advocate
The 2016 Zinfandel Blocks 7 & 22 was aged for 15 months in French oak, 33% new. Pale to medium garnet-purple colored, it dances out of the glass with spicy notions of cloves, fenugreek, star anise and cumin seed with a core of raspberry preserves, stewed plums and blueberry compote plus wafts of tobacco, fallen leaves and fragrant soil. The palate is full-bodied with loads of juicy red and black fruit preserves flavors and a chewy texture, finishing with loads of freshness and a spicy kick. 1,059 cases were made.

Winery Hendry Vineyards

Region: California

Since the 18th century, California has been a hugely important and influential wine region, acting as a trailblazer for other New World wine regions and utilizing an important blend of traditional and contemporary practices, methods and techniques relating to their wine production. Split into four key areas – the North Coast, the Central Coast, the South Coast and the Central Valley – Californian wineries make the most of their ideal climate and rich variety of terrains in order to produce a fascinating range of wines made with a long list of different fine grape varietals. Today, the state has almost half a million acres under vine, and is one of the world's largest wine exporters, with Californian wines being drunk and enjoyed all across the globe.

Country: United States

Of all the New World wine countries, perhaps the one which has demonstrated the most flair for producing high quality wines - using a combination of traditional and forward-thinking contemporary methods - has been the United States of America. For the past couple of centuries, the United States has set about transforming much of its suitable land into vast vineyards, capable of supporting a wide variety of world-class grape varietals which thrive on both the Atlantic and the Pacific coastlines. Of course, we immediately think of sun-drenched California in regards to American wines, with its enormous vineyards responsible for the New World's finest examples of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot based wines, but many other states have taken to viticulture in a big way, with impressive results. Oregon, Washington State and New York have all developed sophisticated and technologically advanced wine cultures of their own, and the output of U.S wineries is increasing each year as more and more people are converted to their produce.

Appellation: Napa Valley

Anybody with an interest in New World wines is surely in agreement with the fact that Napa Valley in California is now, without much doubt, one of the world's premier wine regions. With an ideal climate for viticulture, fertile and mineral rich soils, and a dedication for quality and expression of terroir, Napa Valley wines consistently impress on the world stage with their flavors, aromas and overall character. The wineries of the valley have had plenty of success with a wide range of grape varietals, which flourish in the heat and ripen fully in the Californian sunshine each year, and the innovation and experimentation undertaken by the vintners of the region has helped create a wine culture and reputation in the valley which is unique, yet classic – a perfect blend of the new and the old.
