Herman Story, Nuts & Bolts, Syrah, California 2013
Herman Story was quite a guy. A rancher, logger, banker, philanthropist and teller of tales, one might argue he was bigger than life. So is this wine.
Winemaker Russell From, Herman's grandson, makes big, bold and irresistible wines. His grand dad would be quite proud. Nuts & Bolts is 100% Syrah from 10, hand selected vineyards throughout Santa Barbara and the central coast. We love this wine for its aromas of coffee and light cinnamon followed by a heaping helping of dark chocolate. And Russell himself nailed it when he described this wine as "softly dangerous". Sometimes you just need a wine that will do all the thinking and heavy lifting for you. We suggest a decanting time of at least 60 minutes. Nuts & Bolts will drink well now through 2024. 15.7% alc.
