Russell's first 100% Bien Nacido Syrah, the 2012 Syrah Bien Nacido incorporates a splash of Viognier and was brought up all in new French oak. It's a sensational Syrah from one of the best vineyards in the Central Coast and exhibits deep, voluptuous and full-bodied notes of smoked black fruits, chocolate, dried earth and big minerality. Showing more structure and breadth with time in the glass, it taste like the essence of Bien Nacido, albeit, on steroids. Give this beauty a year in the cellar and it will knock your socks off over the following 6-7 years.
Pulling from a number of sites spread throughout the Central Coast, Herman Story’s Russell From makes unabashedly Californian wines that make the most of the beautiful fruit that makes California so special. These are not for those craving tiny, mid-weight efforts and they have rocking textures, tons of fruit and most importantly, always remain a joy to drink. These are gorgeous wines."
