Herman Storys Barolo-inspirerede Grenache blev vinificeret i 30% hele klaser, altså med masser af stilke. Den lange lagertid på eg gør vinen tæt, koncentreret og rustik. Med Russells egne ord: “It’s time to head up to the cabin by the lake and take in the natural setting. Walking through the nearby forest, you can smell soil recently struck by lightning. The setting is elegant but rustic, with burnt marshmallows and coffee roasting over the granite fire pit. Later, there will be wild blueberry pie straight out of the oven and a nip or two out of Grandpa’s absinthe stash. You playfully dance with the stuffed and mounted grizzly bear in the corner, the one that came looking for a fight all those years ago but now stands ready with a furry embrace. Go ahead and enjoy. After all, what happens at the cabin stays at the cabin.”

Som altid er mærkaten et gammelt skoleportræt af et vinklubmedlem.

“En Domaine de Marcoux-lignende duft af kirsebærlikør, hvide blomster, smeltet lakrids og tørrede blomster. Den er eksklamerende, fyldig og utrolig sexet i smagen; det er kort sagt endnu en enestående Grenache fra Russell.” – Jeb Dunnock
