2011 Novy Cellars Syrah Rosella's Vineyard
Santa Lucia Highlands, California
WB Rating: 87

Alcohol by volume: 13.8%
Price at time of purchase: $21.75 (from Winery)
Type: Syrah
Principal varietal(s): Syrah

Promising deep, dark purple in color, lovely nose of blackberry, sweet spices, baking pastry, chocolate. In the mouth, soft, open-knit, and - to may taste - lacking the grip and energy and depth of Novy's best Syrah's. Still, it was a terrific buy during a great sale at the winery. I'm a huge fan of the Novy Syrahs; the 2011 Rosella's just isn't near the top of my Novy favorite's list. - HK 2014-10-25
