Coravined. Soaring aromas of black currant preserves, black olive paste, bacon fat and graphite make up an enticing nose. The palate shows satin textured, sweet crushed black small fruits, low acidity, melting tannins and a long spicy and charcoal tinged finish. What a great showing and a good value to boot.
PnP. Deep purple with long legs. Nose is dark and rich... hints of bramble and pepper, loaded with blackberry, blueberry and cola. Palate is a muted reflection of the nose... with some tart cherry on the back end. Nice residual acidity (or the tartness) on the finish... with just a hint of tannins. Drinking very nice right now. Very good QPR at $25 (PA State Store close out price from 2012).
I went to the cellar and pulled this without consulting CT (which is usually a dangerous proposition) but it turned out great. A great nose of mocha, blackberry, vanilla, and even a bit of anise led to a palate with tons of fruit and depth. This is an enjoyable wine that I could drink for a while. Siduri/Novy will always be one of my favorites precisely because of this wine—perhaps not the finesse that I prefer, but balanced and fun. In the end, I can’t really ask for a lot more.
