a little flat and lifeless on this opening, not what I recalled from previous serving; fruit was subdued and acidity was too emphasized; served at an appropriate temp;

Very nice and drinking well. Quite the inky purple wine. Adequate nose. Very plush black and blue ripe and integrated fruit. Still with tannins and alcohol. Bold and beautiful. Long and very nice finish.

Not my style - too glycerol and thick. The nose smells nice, plummy fruit, brambles, and some wood. But besides the mouthfeel there's also a woody tannic element on the mid-palate that is not to my taste.

2006 Novy Family Wines Syrah Susan's Hill Vineyard

Santa Lucia Highlands more

6/10/2015 - Senso-beak wrote: 93 points

Opened with leftovers. This is a seriously stacked and concentrated bad girl, oozing with fruit and extraction, and it's working well on this syrah. Deep black fruits on the nose, very sweet and jammy, with blackberry, loganberry, lingonberry, black cherry, oak, and the beginnings of more mature plummy, anise, tarry notes. Long, long finish with some tannic bite still. This in some ways is still a baby, a jam bomb. This is by no means over Susan's Hill, and will continue to satisfy for several years. Highly enjoyable. 1 more left.

Very average, and probably too old (though oddly the wine is quite dark and tense). Blackberries, plums, and something really off-putting.

Last bottle from a memorable trip. A little hot on the nose. Dark fruits across the palate. Moderate length. Still drinking well.

Fab zin. Opaque black-ruby with red legs. Excellent fruit in the nose, purple fruits, violets, rich, porty, alcoholic but not over the top. In the mouth it sports highly extracted fruit, blue-black flavors, and a tremendous palate impression. This is one of the best zins I have had in some time. All around excellent. 4-12-17-9: 92/100.

My early 2000 Novy Syrahs continue to impress me with their aging. Supposedly outside of its drinking window, this is very good drinking. Not a mind blowing experience, simply tastes good and balanced. No reason to wait, but not gone by any means.

Clear and bright, light golden yellow, decent legs. Very fresh nose, lots of grapefruit, herbs and lychee. Very pure fruit aroma. Good fresh fruit framed with abundant acid to lend structure plus. This is tight, should be a good food wine and should last a few years if the fruit holds out. 4-12-15-8: 89/100,

Medium-dark purple. Good legs. Deep, rich, ripe varietal nose. Highly extracted with savory herbs. Big wine in the mouth, loads of ripe fruit. Could use a little time to smooth out, but fine now if you like a rich, somewhat raw-boned zin. 4-11-15-8: 88/100.

4/22/2015 - MicklethePickle Does not like this wine: 82 points

Medium yellow. Banana, taffy-like nose, also shows steely mineral elements. Bit of a rubbery element, too, I'm sorry to say, but it is really colder rigfht now than it should be for optimum rating condition. Good mouthfeel. Not terribly special, even a little disjointed at this point. Charred wood in the finish. Could be a bit of bottle shock as I just got it shipped here yesterday. For now, 4-10-13-5: 82/100.
