2016 Herman Story "Bolt Cutter" Red Blend

SKU #1382682 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Hearty aromas of kirsch, cassis, snickerdoodle and root beer show on the nose of this blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Petit Verdot and 15% Syrah by Russell From. It’s lavish on the palate with rich blueberry, charred coffee bean, caramellaced fudge and burned beef flavors, all sheathed in tight tannins. (MK) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Opaque purple. Heady, smoke-tinged aromas of ripe black currant and cherry are complemented by suggestions of mocha, vanilla, cured meat and pipe tobacco. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering deep-pitched dark fruit preserve, cherry cola, vanilla and floral pastille flavors sharpened by a hint of cracked pepper. Gently chewy tannins build steadily on a very long, dark-fruit- and spice-driven finish that leaves a hint of espresso behind. 70% new French oak. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2020)
