NOVY 2009 Syrah Russian River Valley Christensen Family Vineyard
Alluring aromas of spice, pepper, wild berry and blackberry lead to melted black licorice and game meat flavors on the full-bodied palate, picking up a leathery espresso edge on the finish. Best from 2012 through 2020.

2007 Novy Cellars Page-Nord Vineyard Syrah (Napa Valley)
Slow to emerge elements of pepper and game bring solid Syrah credentials to this very deep, well-fruited effort, and there is still a convincing sense of structured tightness as work here that is the hallmark of an ageworthy wine. Its firm, nominally tannic finish does not entirely encourage near-term enjoyment, but there can be no doubt that time will make good things even better and we strongly encourage a wait of several years.
2007 Novy Cellars Russian River Valley Syrah
Bright, lively and fairly deep in keenly defined blackberry fruit, this well-balanced bottling is the smoothest of the several new Novy Syrahs, and its combination of richness and vitality make it a wine to watch. It emphasizes fruit over spice and is filled out by nicely fit oak, and, if it is not a brooding behemoth that demands fairly lengthy keeping, it is certain to gain further refinement over the next three to five years.

2006 Novy Parsons' Vineyard Syrah Russian River Valley
Rating: 90 points
Very ripe and extracted, just oozing the flavors of melted blackberry jam, black raspberry puree and milk chocolate. A bit sweet, but saved by firm tannins.-S.H.
