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

Had a wonderful nose, plenty of fruit. Classic aged zin with plenty of deep red fruit. Clearly at or just beyond peak. 26 bottles in CT, should enjoy.

Poured through a bottle aerator. Really nice! A bit of white pepper. A lot of nice fruit. Dark berry favors throughout.

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.

Dinner Party Blind Tasting - The syrah drinkers picked this one out almost immediately. When people wonder why we don't drink more syrah, this is a wine that belongs on the poster. WHen it was revealed, two people said that they didn't know they could enjoy syrah so much.

Dinner Club Blind Tasting - Great way to start the night. Nice color in the glass. Just a hint of that strange aroma some associate with cat pee. Some said that is why they identified it as a SB. Nice fruit on the palate.

2006 Novy Family Wines Syrah Dry Creek Valley

4/19/2015 - Senso-beak wrote: 86 points

Opened and poured, A medium ruby to pink at the rin. Full bodied, brambly syrah featuring lots of raspberry and blackberry, with an anise component and dust. There's also a floral hint, almost rose. Fruit is hanging on, though mostly resolved. Tannins are all but gone. Smooth and velvety landing on the finish. Dry creek dust and crackly fall leaves. Turns simple with a day under vac-u-vin, going slightly south and sour. Decent wine.

Dark inky purple. Nose of smoke and white pepper. On the palate, hint of blueberry and licorice. Good slightly tart fruit. Should have decanted.

Day one after pop and pour the wine is hot and unbalanced. We recorked (rescrewed?) the bottle and put it back in the fridge.
Day two yields a much more complex, savory and balanced wine. Great QPR, but the 24 hour decant makes all the difference.

Sorry ... not to my liking. I like my dessert wines sweeter and with a little more acidity. It just tasted ... slightly off ... earthy ... funky. Not my kind of late harvest wine.

Tasted originally in 2009, this Novy Syrah Gary's Vineyard has evolved into a stunning wine! Removed from my temp-controlled cellar, I popped and poured. Loads of fruit, white pepper, and last forever with a lingering, complex finish. There is no hint the cliff is near but at the same time, this seems to be at its peak. Drink soon and enjoy!
