Winemaker Notes

At last, the guitar is yours. Its velvet lined case contains the spirits of 1000 shows: fine Cuban Anejo run, black cherry coke, Connecticut wrapped Gurkha Beauties, motor oil, and chicory coffee. In your hands, the guitar unleashes a series of riffs that rip like a 1/4 mile drag race on a cherry tarmac. This thing destroys, like a dragon breathing fire on a California hillside. Outside the garage, a crowd has gathered, they build a funeral pyre and offer up baskets of fresh cherries as you strike one more chord and melt the iron shackles holding the maidens.

For many, Nuts & Bolts functions as the Herman Story Gateway Drug. Each vintage delivers a Syrah of exceptional structure, body, and power. Nuts & Bolts is built of the most opulent, expressive Syrah barrels in the cellar.

Moving to the 2016s and a wine that always delivers, the 2016 Nuts & Bolts has lots of White Hawk character in its white pepper, cedar, underbrush and black and blue fruits. Made from 100% Syrah aged in 80% new wood, this beauty is concentrated, full-bodied, and silky, with no hard edges. Drink it over the coming 5-7 years.

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Herman Story Nuts & Bolts Syrah shows us what the Brave New World has in store for fine wine lovers. TASTING NOTES: This wine is built like a ton of bricks, but it plays lovingly on the palate. Its aromas and flavors of bold blackberries, chalk, and tar, should make it an excellent partner with grilled baby back ribs in a piquant sauce. (Tasted: October 31, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Herman Story Proprietor and winemaker Russell P. From Winery Image

Proprietor and winemaker Russell P. From began Herman Story Wines in 2001 with 7 barrels stashed in his employer’s cellar. What started as a modest homage to his rancher grandfather has become a beacon to those seeking opulent, structured Syrah and Grenache. To maintain balance while giving flavor full stage, Russell works with 30 top-tier vineyards in over 7 distinct growing regions between Santa Barbara and Paso Robles. From's dedication has held the attention of discriminating consumers and reviewers alike, earning him a coveted position in Wine Spectator's Top 100 List in 2014 for his On the Road Grenache and and average 90+ score on CellarTracker across all wines and vintages.

Red Wine

A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties, covering nearly double the vineyard acreage of whites.

While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon reigns as king.

Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while old, gnarly Zinfandel vines survived Prohibition.

The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and remain active frontiers for newer varieties, namely Rhône and Spanish.

The cool Anderson Valley in California’s North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.
