Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Deep Ruby, complex, yet delicate with aromas of dark fruits, spice and earthy notes. On the palate flavors of plum and cherry with smoky oak, pepper and cacao wrapped in generous acidity. Fine sweet tannins, long finish, great structure ending with fruit, cedar, spice and slight earthy tones. Nice!

Pliant, silky and beautifully perfumed, Novy’s 2016 Zinfandel has so much to offer. Lifted floral notes add brightness to the red berry and purplish fruit. Best of all, this juicy, mid-weight Russian River Zinfandel offers serious quality for the money. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2018)
