Herman Story Larner Vineyard Syrah 2013
Since 2010, Herman Story is only making a Syrah - Grenache blend from Larner Vineyard. Intense dark berry flavors balanced with a little spice from the grenache. Smooth mouthfeel, wonderful by itself.
Wine SpectatorDistinctive and powerfully built, combining California ripeness and Old World gamy accents. Blackberry, cracked pepper and bacon fat aromas merge with complex flavors of ripe cherry, smoky herb and espresso. The tannins are big but fleshy. Syrah and Grenache. Drink now through 2026. 323 cases made. –TF
