Our Reserve wine is unique every year. We let each season, each barrel, each varietal guide us in crafting this rare blend. Our approach differentiates from what most people expect from a Reserve wine - rather than the best lots of a single varietal or extra care for designated barrels - ours is driven by what nature and vinification techniques result from each year. We exist to make great wine, therefore all of our lots are made with the utmost quality at our disposal - we treat every drop the same. It's the standout barrels and varietals that rise above all expectations each year, from which we select pay close attention to, when blending the reserve program, only yielding about a single barrel or two. This is Henry's Reserve - the constant pursuit of the most authentic expression, each year, from what fruit this historic vineyard provides us. It never will be, nor is meant to be, the same.
The 2016 Henry's Reserve has a deep garnet-purple color and opens with bold crème de cassis, baked plums and red currant jelly notes with wafts of Black Forest cake, bay leaves and black tea. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with black berry preserves and herbal sparks with a chewy frame and plenty of freshness, finishing long.
