Herman Story On The Road Grenache 2013

$47.99

Rare Grenache from one of our favorite Central Coast producers! Get some of this gem while it's still available.  93 Points Robert Parker:  "Checking in as 100% Grenache, the 2013 On The Road (Grenache) was half destemmed and brought up in 65% new and 35% neutral French oak. It offers up a perfumed bouquet of kirsch and black raspberry fruits, crushed rocks, spice and dried earth in a full-bodied, supple, balanced and delicious style. It has a kick of savory tannin to integrate, but it's already approachable and should offer tons of pleasure over the coming 4-5 years.... ...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. "

Excellent tasting with Chris! Mix of ruby and garnet red. Elegant nose with cinnamon, purple flowers, roses and darker berries. Strong acidity and warm mouthfeel. Medium tannins (6.5/10) and medium plus bodied. Darker on the palate than the nose with notes of blackcurrants, cassis, and nutmeg. Medium plus finish. Made of 100% Grenache. Fruit comes from 9 coastal vineyards. Drink from 2018 till 2024.

Dark, rich, blackberry jam, sweet oak. Complex, but hot and sweet. Ripe and clumsy wine.
