2008 Herman Story "Nuts & Bolts" California Syrah

SKU #1060262 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The compelling 2008 Syrah Nuts & Bolts falls short of being bombastic. Its opaque purple color is accompanied by a knock-out nose of graphite, incense, blackberries, acacia flowers, and tar. This multilayered, full-bodied effort is the most backward of any of the Herman Story wines, and the tannins, while prominent, are sweet and well-integrated. Layered, pure, and stunningly rich, it should drink well for a decade or more. Readers looking for super-concentrated, extroverted, exuberant, powerhouse wines from California's Central Coast need look no further than the Herman Story estate. For those who love the wild side of Rhone varietals pushed to the limit (but not over), these are highly recommended. Moreover, prices are exceptionally fair for this level of quality. Inner quote mark (8/2010)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Gushing with rich dark berry, currant, plum and black licorice flavors, this is full-bodied, bold and layered, with loads of spice, pepper, cedar and sage character. Slow to unfold, ending with elegant layers of flavor. Drink now through 2020. (JL) Inner quote mark (2/2011)
