2017 Herman Story "Casual Encounters" Santa Barbara County Rhône Blend

SKU #1496756 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark More inky colored, the 2017 Casual Encounters checks in as 40% Syrah, 35% Mourvèdre, 19% Grenache, and tiny amounts of Carignan and Tannat. Lots of mulled black fruits, smoked meat, barbecue, and peppery notes emerge from the glass. It's full-bodied, super-rich, and concentrated, yet still stays light on its feet and beautifully balanced. It's a classic, sweetly fruited, sexy 2017 ... Inner quote mark (9/2020)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark There's a unique and interesting kick of chipotle smoke, candied yams, root beer, caramel and dirty chai spice on the nose of this blend of 40% Syrah, 35% Mourvèdre, 19% Grenache, 4% Carignan and 2% Tannat. The richness of black cherry and sea-salt caramel carries through the palate, but the gingerbread spice is prevalent as well. (MK) Inner quote mark (4/2020)
