A “Turkey Day” wine suggestion 


Russell From Owner/Winemaker: Doesn’t matter what your stepdad said, this cherry-licorice-lacquered Harley was made for sweet sunset joyrides. So when Liz Basinger’s eyes go wide at the engine’s meaty cinnamon growl, you’ve got no choice. Pistons dripping molasses, dual tailpipes blowing grilled-herb smoke, with pines whizzing by on either side. Her arms wrapped around your purloined leather jacket, strawberry sweet nothings in your ear—you’re going faster, faster, intoxicated by the open road. Now if you can just figure out how to break.

Paso Robles

(OK to mix & match with all Herman Story wines)


Based all on 100% Grenache from multiple sites in California and aged 4 years in 30% new French oak, the Grenache Late Bloomer offers a Domaine de Marcoux-like perfume of kirsch liqueur, white flowers, melted licorice, and dried flowers. Exuberant, full-bodied, and incredibly sexy on the palate, it’s another rockingly singular, sexy Grenache from Russell. It’s great today but should keep for 5-7 years.
