Limited new release! A blockbuster Petite Sirah from Herman Story - get on the bandwagon while it's still available. 94 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Also inky colored, the First Time Caller (100% Petite Sirah aged in 80% new French oak) boasts a deep, dense, massive style as well as backward notes of black fruits, scorched earth, road tar, and smoked meat. It's a powerful, full-bodied effort, yet it stays fresh and has a seamless texture, fabulous balance, and a great finish. It’s a steakhouse red done with class." Robert Parker: "...Pulling from a number of sites spread throughout the Central Coast, Herman Story’s Russell From makes unabashedly Californian wines that make the most of the beautiful fruit that makes California so special. These are not for those craving tiny, mid-weight efforts and they have rocking textures, tons of fruit and most importantly, always remain a joy to drink. These are gorgeous wines." Brix26 Inside Scoop: There are some fantastic small labels coming out of the Paso Robles wine country in California's Central Coast, and Herman Story winery is our latest "crush" (pun intended). The style of wines are full-throttle, fruit forward bombastic style while keeping things balanced and delicious. Like going right up to the point of over-the-top and stopping perfectly before it. The 2012 Nuts & Bolts Syrah is a beautiful example of what small, hands-on winemakers like Herman Story are achieving with the varietal in Paso Robles.
