In the glass, this BIGASS Cali Grenache is a straight up tractor tire…. It’s wide as hell, jet black, and at max psi….
The nose on this behemoth is spicy and woody with notes of black licorice, treated lumber, and barrel room floor….
When the wine hits my palate there’s a syrupy start that develops into a blueberry and raspberry smoothie ———> The middle gets hot with white pepper and a vodka kick that thankfully mellows into softer notes of red licorice, cedar wood, and vanilla bean before an ending that finishes with dark chocolate covered cherries and raspberry liqueur….
Herman Story Wines are known for being unapologetically HUGE and this Grenache is NO EXCEPTION…. Guess what ——–> I’m okay with that!!! Know what you’re in for before you pop the cork on this guy ——–> then pour a glass, sit back, and enjoy the ride!
