Winemaker's Notes

The Novy Napa Valley Syrah has always come from the Page-Nord Vineyard at the southern end of the Napa Valley. Over the years we have been fine tuning this wine, learning which parts of the vineyard produce a grapes better suited for the Napa Syrah (as opposed to those designated for the Page-Nord). We have slowly designated two sections primarily for this wine and farm them differently, generally picking them a bit later while looking for a bit riper fruit profile. We also use a different technique in producing this wine, bleeding off a portion of the juice about 2/3 of the way through fermentation and letting that juice finish fermentation in new oak barrels. This tends to concentrate the wine that is left behind. It also provides a richer, creamier mid-palate to the wine that finishes fermenting in oak. We end up blending these two wines back together and produce what becomes our Napa Syrah.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Syrah is a textbook effort revealing notes of pepper, forest floor, black olives, earth, and copious black fruits. It is a fleshy, round, dense wine with gorgeous purity as well as a long, heady finish. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years."
91 Points

"Slow to emerge elements of pepper and game bring solid Syrah credentials to this very deep, well-fruited effort, and there is still a convincing sense of structured tightness as work here that is the hallmark of an ageworthy wine. Its firm, nominally tannic finish does not entirely encourage near-term enjoyment, but there can be no doubt that time will make good things even better and we strongly encourage a wait of several years."

I liked this. It's full-bodied and bold, easy to drink and no hard edges. Not complex, but no complaints at this price point. A value for sure.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
