WA 93 AG 93 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - Deep, black-fruited and layered, the 2011 Nuts & Bolts is 100% Syrah that was harvest from the middle to end of November. Aged in 55% new French oak for 16 months, it delivers a seamless, silky profile with rich, full aromatics (cassis, barbecued meat, exotic spices) full-bodied richness, good acidity and a lengthy, pure finish that highlights finely polished tannin. As with the Grenache On the Road, it’s a slightly lighter, fresher version of this cuvee. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years. Drink now-2018.
According to Antonio Galloni - A vivid, multi-dimensional wine the 2011 Syrah Nuts & Bolts bursts from the glass with the essence of blackberry jam, melted road tar, graphite, incense and licorice, all in a rich, broad-shouldered style that is immensely appealing. Vibrant mineral notes underpin an exciting, full-throttle Syrah loaded with personality. This may be one of the very finest Herman Story wines I have ever tasted. Readers will want to give the 2011 at least a few hours of air, as the wine really needs time to open up.
Winemakers Notes - The 2011 Nuts & Bolts is a lot like a Sting Ray, sure it’ll jump when you hit the gas, but it’s also got the finesse to handle the tight corners. It hits the road with scents of mountain strawberry, cherry skin, Spanish Chorizo and ground clove. On the palate it burns the light and tears down the highway with flavors of dark chocolate powder, pure maple syrup, fennel and cinnamon stick with tannins that linger like a cloud of smoke.
