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.

91 – “The 2018 Red Blend Henry’s Reserve Pellet Vineyard is an attractive wine, even if it doesn’t have the exuberance of the other wines in this range. Bright floral accents and sweet red berry fruit flavors abound.” – Anthony Galloni, Vinous Media

 93 - "A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the 2018 Red Blend Henry's Reserve offers a spicy, complex style with plenty of plum and jammy blackberry fruits as well as cedary herb and flowery incense notes. It's medium to full-bodied, nicely textured and balanced..– Jeb Dunnuck,

 92 – “Notes of dark fruit, herbs and wood. A savory, balanced, medium-to full-bodied red. Firm tannins bring structure and the elegant finale has length. Lightly austere now.” – James Suckling,
