WTN: Novy Syrah Page-Nord '00...(short/boring)

by TomHill » Wed Nov 22, 2017 2:33 pm

Also tried this last night:
1. Novy Syrah Page-NordVnyd/NapaVlly (15.1%) 2000: Dark color w/ some bricking; strong blackberry/blueberry/Syrah some bretty/horsecollar some toasty/Siduri oak/smokey bit complex nose; soft rather pencilly/Siduri oak/smokey fairly strong blackberry/Syrah/blueberry bit complex flavor w/ light smooth/gentle tannins; long rather pencilly/smokey/Siduri oak some blueberry/Syrah/blackberry bit drying finish w/ light gentle tannins; pleasant enough mature Syrah w/ lots of signature Siduri oak but not developed into anything special; will quietly fade away into the sunset.

1. I've always liked Adam's Syrahs but never thought them to have the structure for long aging. But sometimes it's just the balance that carries a wine out there. I've always regarded his Napa Syrahs as the least of his Syrah portfolio. So I was surprised as to how good this wine was. Nothing profound, just pleasant drinking. Sometimes that's all you want.
