Hendry Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2009

This Cabernet shows captivating depth and richness. Aromas of sweet cherries, mint and currants lead to a palate of layered fruit, highlighting blue and black berries, creme de cassis, baking spices and subtle earth tones. The finish is expansive and persistent, leaving one with the impression they drank a far more expensive bottle than they did.

This latitude in the valley experiences substantial marine influence and allows them to grow 10 different varietals, each carefully distributed among 47 vineyard blocks.
