CA Syrah; 5/27/2012-6/5/2012: Rich and boozy first impression with ripe plum and berry everywhere and a underlying plasticky thing. With air some pepper and more savory tones emerged but this was kind of lost in the mix as it was intermediate on the ripeness, alcohol, meatiness, and had nothing to stand out. As such, it was the sleeper and ended up being my second favorite wine at the end of the night.
Same reaction as my tasting from earlier this year, although I think I gave this a slightly higher score due to Novy reputation and past experience with maker; solidly made wine, but it is just not that complex and the finish is very quick
