Herman Story Casual Encounters Red 2013


SKU 39028



Supple, sweet and densely packed, deeply concentrated cherry compote, boysenberry and spicecake flavors enlivened by a refreshing jolt of white pepper. Velvety tannins lend shape to the expansive, spice-accented finish, which leaves behind a sweet red fruit preserve note.

Wine EnthusiastHearty black plums, smoked beef and violets meet with rust, crushed rocks and a little dried sage on the nose of Russell From's blend of 45% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 18% Mourvèdre and 2% Tannat. Intense and dark blueberry-blackberry fruit shows on the palate along with elegant herbs and spices, from bay leaf and thyme to powerful black pepper. This wine is an attention-grabber for sure.
