Day 1 tasted blind and thought without a doubt this was an old world red. Tons of aromatics, minerality, tight on opening. Day 2 was an about-face: black fruits, milk chocolate, with a tad of bitter tannin at the end. I love dyslexic wines. :) Novy syrahs are so under rated.
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.
Anise, briney dark fruit, smoke, earth, more of a cool climate Syrah. Great QPR for less than $20. Day 2 update. This has turned into an awesome wine. It has deepened, added a tobacco/tar element and the nose is much more fragrant. I am actually taken back by how much a day has changed this one. Up 3 points. I recommend more cellar time, a slow in bottle oxidation or a long decant.
