For many, Nuts & Bolts functions as the Herman Story Gateway Drug. Each vintage delivers a Syrah of exceptional structure, body, and power. Nuts & Bolts is built of the most opulent, expressive Syrah barrels in the cellar.
Jeb Dunnuck 94 - More inky purple-colored, the 100% Syrah 2017 Nuts & Bolts was brought up 18 months in 83% new French oak. Tons of meaty, barbecue, spice, chocolate, and assorted dark fruits emerge from the glass, and this puppy packs a punch on the palate, with full-bodied richness, a stacked mid-palate, ripe, sweet tannins, no hard edges, and a rocking finish. Drink this meaty, spicy, peppery powerhouse of a Syrah over the coming 7-8 years.
Wine Enthusiast 94 - Fans of Paso Robles richness should flock to this bottling by Russell From and team. Aromas of seared black currant, charred meat, cocoa and fudge cake drop into an explosively rich palate that’s unctuous with cassis, coffee and gingerbread into the finish. Yet there’s a sizzle of acidity that gives tension throughout.
