2013 Herman Story Bien Nacido Vineyard Syrah

Hohoho… enjoying some Californian Syrah in the snow! Blackberries, black olives, cracked paper, black cherries, vanilla, dill, wood, and some banana on the nose. Sweet cherries and blackberries on the palate with olives, pepper, and a whiff of ham hock. Bright acidity to keep the alcohol in check.
