| 2007 Novy Cellars Syrah Russian River Valley|
Russian River, Sonoma, CA
WB Rating: 87
Alcohol by volume: 14.1%
Price at time of purchase: $14.00 (from Winery)
Principal varietal(s): Syrah
Richly fruity, straight-ahead Syrah from an outstanding source for excellent, fairly priced Syrahs. The 2007 Russian River offering is in its drinkability sweet-spot at age 5, displaying a chewy texture, ripe blueberry and blackberry fruit, and notes of dried herbs and charcoal. Not nearly as deep, focused, or complex as its more expensive Novy single-vineyard siblings, but a super every day red. (Purchased for $7 in 375ml bottles during an excellent sale at the winery.) - HK 2012-03-05
