Herman Story On The Road Grenache 2012

$47.99

Rare Grenache from one of ouur favorite Central Coast producers! Get some of this gem while it's still available. 93 Points Robert Parker:  "Made from 100% Grenache and aged 16 months in 40% new French oak, the 2012 On The Road is a blockbuster-styled effort that stays lively, elegant and fresh. Loaded with peppery herbs, licorice, earth and darker berry fruit, it’s unabashedly California and has fantastic purity and richness. Enjoy this beauty over the coming 4-5 years... I loved these latest releases from winemaker Russell From. His 2011s are excellent in the vintage, with slightly toned down, elegant profiles that stay focused and tight on the palate. His 2012s are even better, with hedonistic, textured profiles and fantastic purity of fruit. They’re all worth checking out."

Always great. Opened this and was big out of the gate still. Not too much. Put it in the fridge overnight. The next day it drank beautifully. Smooth and balanced with ripe fruit. Great wine!

All the typical Grenache notes and this one I think is peaking. Nice.

Lush dark fruit. Polished. A bit over the top for me personally, but well made for the style.

Beautiful fruit on this luxury wine. It's is a bit high in alcohol but the overall balance of acidity and a mind make this a serious wine.

A wonderful Grenache. Delicious with chocolate bread pudding. Big perfume. Smoke and leather.

Another winner from Russell From at Herman Story. Great notes of dark chocolate, blackberry, and kirsch on the nose. Beautifully integrated palate with sweet, evolved tannins enveloped in fruit and glycerine, followed by a nice (albeit slightly hot) finish. Terrific.
