Checking in as 100% Grenache, the 2013 On The Road (Grenache) was half destemmed and brought up in 65% new and 35% neutral French oak. It offers up a perfumed bouquet of kirsch and black raspberry fruits, crushed rocks, spice and dried earth in a full-bodied, supple, balanced and delicious style. It has a kick of savory tannin to integrate, but it's already approachable and should offer tons of pleasure over the coming 4-5 years. Pulling from a number of sites spread throughout the Central Coast, Herman Story’s Russell From makes unabashedly Californian wines that make the most of the beautiful fruit that makes California so special. These are not for those craving tiny, mid-weight efforts and they have rocking textures, tons of fruit and most importantly, always remain a joy to drink. These are gorgeous wines. (JD)
Vibrant ruby-red. Sexy, focused aromas of raspberry liqueur, potpourri and peppery spices. Sweet, seamless and broad, offering intense red fruit and lavender pastille flavors accented by allspice and star anise. The velvety, expansive, floral finish shows excellent persistence and harmonious tannins. There's 16.1% alcohol here, for those keeping score at home. Owner/winemaker Russell From produces a wide range of rich and usually flamboyant wines at his stripped-down winery in downtown Paso Robles, hard by the railroad tracks. His wines have quickly become among the most sought after bottlings from the region and, like his colleagues who are also high up in the Paso Robles pecking order, his waiting list is growing steadily. From and his wife, Vailia Esh (Desparada), welcomed a new child into the world the night before I visited on June 13 so I tasted through this new set of releases with From’s assistant winemaker, Giovanni Grandinetti.

Dramatically styled and distinctly ripe, with baked cherry and freshly cracked pepper aromas and zesty flavors of smoky raspberry, graphite and licorice. Drink now through 2020. (Web-2016)
