  • Drank with baby back ribs. It was good but nothing special. Moderate fruit up front with some spice and a bit of a hot finish.

  • Poured through Vinturi for splash decant ... This bottle seemed a little harsh, with rough edges on the finish and less of the up front fruit I've come to expect. I gather this one might be just past its peak and heading downhill. A little out of balance too, and never smoothed out in the glass or decanter throughout the evening.

    This might just have been a slightly off-bottle, but I will say that, in general (i.e. more than just this one bottle), while I was initially impressed with Novy's syrahs, I've noticed they drink fairly well early on, but don't seem to cellar well, even over the relatively short term (3-5 years), making them a poor overall QPR, in my opinion.

  • Nose of musty red bell pepper. Focused blackberry and currant flavors on a really smooth frame. Nice long finish.

  • Minty on the nose with brooding aromas. Palate is tasty, but lacking enough structure and tannins to support the 14+ alcohol. Seems a consistent problem with this vintage. Very Australian, in a bad way. Nice enough for a party.

  • On opening was wonderful .. with rich red and black fruits, well structured. After an hour or so started to get a little harsh with the tannins coming forward a little to dry. Another hour later though started to come together again with classic Syrah flavors.
