Winery: "Block 7 has been the foundation for our Zinfandel since the first vintage of the Hendry label, back in 1992. The vines were planted in 1975. Originally, it was sold to other vintners, helping to form the foundation of George Hendry’s reputation as a grower.
Ruby color. Initial aromas include deep berry fruit, spice, floral notes and tea. Berry and ripe cherry fruit on the palate, with bittersweet cocoa on the finish. Moderate levels of fine-grained tannin round out the balanced palate. Pair with seasoned lamb chops on the grill, beef carpaccio, seared lean steaks, eggplant Parmesan, pasta with a braised meat ragu. As always, balanced and versatile, with just enough pleasant structure to extend its pairing possibilities."
