2009NovySyrahR2009 Novy (by Siduri) Syrah “Rosella’s Vineyard” Santa Lucia Highlands.
This richly textured Syrah is full and darkly robust with deep color and flavors that fill the palate. The nose draws you in with hints of violets, blue fruits, currants and earthy charms that lead to a lively mouth of boysenberry, plum and cassis with hints of mocha, briar spices and char. The wine is dense, but still vivid and vibrant with a long finish. This vineyard, really known for great Pinot and Chard, continues to show potential for Syrah, in fact in some years I think this site can produce some of the finest Syrah fruit in the state, and this 2009 Novy Rosella’s is certainly a wonderful example.
