Decanted for two hours before even touching the wine. Dark, jammy, thick, bacon and dense tannins.

Super big slick plump wine. Uber fat, dense, thick, a touch of pepper, slightly hot, big oak, and maybe a touch too big all around. I have a feeling if the alcohol was dialed back on this wine just a touch it would show much better.

Definitely my style of Syrah, its got the funky nose & finish I like.
15.8 Abv.
Pax does it with only 12.8 abv, and has more complexity,

Dark red fruit, smoked meat, licorice and a hint of alcohol. Love Herman Story, it's always a ride. @Paul Treadway Huntington Beacher hope you enjoy yours!
