Herman Story 2017 Bolt Cutter Red (California)
Deep and dark aromas of cassis, roasted black cherry, snickerdoodle and gingerbread show on the nose of this blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Petite Verdot and 25% Syrah. It's lush and powerful on the palate, where black-currant paste meets with star anise, nutmeg and violet flavors. Bright acidity lifts it all. Matt Kettmann

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
