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.
Didn't take detailed notes. Very deep inky purple in colour. On the nose it was concentrated blackberries with leather, roasted red meat and tobacco. On the palate it was more brambly fruits, a little gameness and toasted smokey oak in the background. It is a big wine in every way but there is a balance here in that you know it is big guy with manners. Good length on the finish.
