A Napa winemaker told me that “olive” is not a fashionable word to use with Cabernet. Maybe, but the olives here are beautiful. They're the black, French-cured type, enriched with cassis and flashy new oak, and the flavors are balanced with wonderfully rich tannins and fine acids. What a fabulous job Hendry is doing with these Block 8 Cabs. Drink now–2010.
