93 Points

Thursday, March 21, 2013 - Decanted 1 hr then consumed over the next 5 minutes (well, it was more like an hour but it was so good it felt like 5 minutes).

Black and blue fruits along with smoky, gamey, meaty, savory elements showcase the syrah and mourvedre while raspberry type red fruits and licorice show up from the Grenache. But rather than individuals these work as a collective to form such a well integrated pleasure bomb. Over-analyzing this just feels wrong. It's delicious, it's interesting, it's compelling, ... it's Herman Story. It's also 93.
