  • Regular price $125.00

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.

92 - "The 2013 Henry's Reserve (80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon) has beautifully sweet tannin, lots of coffee and mocha, and a plump voluptuous texture. This is a hedonistic and appealing wine with a deep ruby/purple color, plenty of flesh, fruit and purity. It is well done and best drunk over the next decade." Drink now through 2035– Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

91 – “The 2013 Henry's Reserve Pellet Vineyard, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, is laced with the essence of raspberry jam, white truffle, new leather, chocolate and mocha. A wine of extravagant richness and intensity, the 2013 will drink well right out of the gate.” – Anthony Galloni, Vinous Media

92 – “This special cuvée shows more freshness and focus than the regular bottle. Plum, spice and chocolate character with silky tannins and a voluptuous finish. Drink or hold.” – James Suckling
