A blockbuster new Pinot Noir from new discovery Herman Story winery - get on the bandwagon now while it's still available.

Tasting Notes:
"How you ended up on top of this runaway boxcar full of blueberries, you don’t quite remember, but it’s flying down the tracks, through forests of fresh herbs and violet. The Thunderbird convertible alongside wants you to jump, so you do, seconds before the whole thing hits a plum and brown sugar warehouse. Two flips in the air, for good measure, and you land nimbly in the driver’s seat, riding so far into the sunset, you can’t even hear the director yell cut."

Robert Parker: "One of my favorite estates in the Central Coast is Russell From's Herman Story, who makes unapologetic rich, layered, flavor loaded wines that are a joy to drink."

Brix26 Inside Scoop: There are some fantastic small labels coming out of the Paso Robles wine country in California's Central Coast, and Herman Story winery is our latest "crush" (pun intended).  The style of wines are full-throttle, fruit forward bombastic style while keeping things balanced and delicious.  Like going right up to the point of over-the-top and stopping perfectly before it.  The 2014 Nuts & Bolts Syrah is a beautiful example of what small, hands-on winemakers like Herman Story are achieving with the varietal in Paso Robles.

Normal shipping via Fedex or UPS Ground will range from 3 business days (West Coast) to 7 business days (East Coast). If you would like Overnight shipping, please email or call us immediately for options. Please note, expedited shipping such as "2 day air" is for transit time only, this does not include processing time and therefore does not guarantee a specific delivery date. Our ability to respond to expedited requests depends on the particular wines’ availability. We work with many small-production wines which, if not in stock may need to be acquired direct from the winery and may not be available for shipping for several days after your order is placed.

If you have any important time constraints on your order (birthday, anniversary, dinner party, holiday, etc) please email us at info@brix26.com with your order number. Thanks for your understanding.
