Some good drinking

hendrycab8-02.jpgHad a couple of great bottles this weekend.  The first was a Cabernet Sauvignon from Hendry the 2002 Block 8.  FANTASTIC.  They made 1300 cases of the 2001 and only 800 of the 2002...I've got to go look for some before it all disappears.  A bit of dryness and herbal notes.  Very nice

 

The other was Paraduxx 2002 from Duckhorn.  Also fantastic.  Rich and fruity.  Round and supple.  Based on Zinfandel it has that spicy, jammy zin base...but a whole lot more.  Hedonistic is a good way of describing it.para_02_label.jpg
