From the winemaker:
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 every day drinking, but do not have the complexity we require for our Hendry label (and are too good to sell off to someone else!). In some vintages we make one variety, in others, several, and sometimes we make none at all. The production is generally small. This wine is a blend of the blocks and barrels that were not included in the Blocks 7 & 22 Zinfandel or Block 28 Zinfandel.
Medium-bodied, with bright acid and flavors of red cherries and raspberry, with a little bit of baking spice and herb on the finish. Plenty of structure. Should be able to handle a weeknight pizza or barbecue. Good everyday value for those who prefer dry style zinfandels.
