88 | 2011 Hendry Vineyard Napa Valley Pinot Gris
(Best Buy) This wine’s ripeness presents itself as completely clean, its fat almond and fresh apple flavors lasting in their subtle, mild way. Its fruit skin notes bring candle wax and honey to mind while the finish is refreshing. For a summer aperitif.

89 | 2009 Hendry Vineyard Napa Valley Pinot Gris
The 2009 Pinot Gris exhibits a straw color along with a nose of poached apples, pears and citrus blossoms. The wine shows more minerality and a steely character that I found very appealing. Quite delicious, and like its sibling, it is a terrific bargain. (Parker's emphasis.) It too, is best drunk over the next year.

89 | 2008 Hendry Vineyard Napa Valley Pinot Gris
A beautiful Pinot Gris, completely dry and very crisp, that cleanses the palate and prepares it for savory foods. With citrus, floral and pepper flavors, it will pair well with grilled veggies, goat cheese or a delicious roast chicken. S.H.
