New release of a fantastic Cabernet blend from Herman Story. Limited.
Winemaker Tasting Notes: "53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Syrah, 15% Petite Sirah, 13% Petit Verdot. There’s no denying it, with this much attitude, swagger and raw unbridled power nothing can stop this. This is basically an axe wielding shark wearing a tuxedo, driving a monster truck in an Evel Knievel jump across the Grand Canyon. Prickly pear jam, salted cherries, hoisin sauce, fire scorched poblanos, brand new BF Goodrich 33’’ Baja T/AS off road tires, char crusted bloody filet mignon, blasted limestone quarry, Ferrari seats, well spiced Mexican hot chocolate and rusted pocket knives."
Proprietor and winemaker Russell P. From began Herman Story Wines in 2011 with 7 barrels stashed in his employer's cellar. What started as a modest homage to his rancher grandfather has become a beacon to those seeking opulent, structured Syrah and Grenache (and now Cabernet). These are no nonsense, balls to the wall wines that are not for the faint of heart or the pinky raising set.
