Winemaker Notes

This is Henry’s Reserve – the constant pursuit of the most authentic expression, each year, from what fruit this historic vineyard provides us. It never will be, nor is meant to be, the same.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Pellet Estate Henry's Reserve Red Wine is rewarding from start to finish. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers intense aromas and flavors of black fruit, oak, and licorice. Pair it with a well-seasoned, grilled ribeye. (Tasted: March 3, 2022, San Francisco, CA)

The 2017 Red Blend Henry's Reserve offers lovely mid-palate juiciness and sweetness as well as plenty of allure. Sweet raspberry, red plum, mocha, spice, mint and rose petal are all nicely layered in this supple, engaging wine from Pellet. The Red Blend is ripe and jammy, but also understated, with plush fruit, soft contours and tons of appeal.

A step up in price, the 2017 Red Blend Henry's Reserve is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot that gives up a deep purple color as well as juicy blueberry and cassis fruits interwoven with lots of spice box, flowery incense, and lead pencil nuances. Medium to full-bodied, lively, focused, and elegant on the palate, it's another classic 2017 that will keep for 15 years or more. Both reds from this estate showed beautifully.

Pellet Estate  Winery Video

Pellet Estate is a rare, authentically grown, and classically made wine. The Estate is a spectacular vineyard site in the small town of St. Helena, with a rich history dating back to 1859. Henry Pellet, one of the founding pioneers of Napa Valley winemaking, first planted this site with a vision of producing wines that would be among the best in the world. In 2005, owner Greg Krill and his wife Robin purchased 5 acres of this original historic property to found Pellet Estate . His first order of business was to pull out the existing vineyard and replant according modern practices of trellising, row orientation and vineyard management techniques. They then assembled a dream team to perfect every aspect including winemaker Tom Rinaldi, an icon in Napa Valley who was the founding winemaker for Duckhorn, Provenance & Hewitt to name a few.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
