Herman Story, One Hit Wonder, Red Wine, Santa Barbara County 2013
Winemaker Russel From makes big, unabashed California goodness (if you’ve had any of his wines, you know what’s up). Many of his creations come in the form of Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet but we’re hoping One Hit Wonder will last longer than it’s potentially ill-fated name. This wine is 100% Mourvedre from the Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard. It was aged in 30% new French oak for a whopping 36 months. The results are more than we hoped for; rich yet balanced aromas and flavors of warm blackberries, cherries grilled on oak planks and spiced blackberry. One hit Wonder is a great substitute for a big dinner but if you must pair it up, make sure there’s a lot of meat on your plate or the sauce on your pasta is BIG style. Comprende? 15.8% alc. Only 200 cases produced.
