92 points Hendry 2011 Albariño, Napa Valley
Even in the cool 2011 vintage, this wine really shines. It’s bone dry, low in alcohol and high in acidity, making it a delicious accompaniment to a range of foods. Complex citrus, white flower and mineral flavors carry it over the goal line. This is one of the best Albariños of the vintage.

88 Hendry Ranch Albariño 2008 (Napa Valley)
Good for Hendry for going with this Spanish variety. It shows the new trend toward higher acid, drier white wines that appeal for their directness. With its citrus, pepper and flower flavors, it’s perfect on its own, or with Asian, Mexican and grilled pork dishes. S.H.

88 Hendry Ranch Albariño 2009 (Napa Valley)
A near-perfect Albariño, bone dry, acidic and slightly green, with lime and mineral flavors. Totally cleanses the palate. A great cocktail sipper, or try with little Spanish-style tapas. S.H.

88 Points Hendry Albariño 2009
One doesn't see a lot of Albariño outside Spain, but this Napa Valley producer has consecrated some high price land to its growing. The 2009 Albariño possesses crisp, citrusy fruit, light body and good purity as well as freshness. This dry white is best consumed over the next year.
