89 Hendry 2008 Rosé (Napa Valley)
Hendry has been doing interesting things in lesser-known niches, including rosé, and this one, an unusual blend of all five Bordeaux red varieties plus Primitivo, is worth considering. It’s nicely dry and crisp, with flavors of cherries, tobacco, herbs, flowers and vanilla. Very Provençal. S.H.
