About the Wine
Novy Winery was founded by Adam Lee and his wife Dianna Novy. Adam Lee is a legend in the world of wine and he is recognized as one of the best winemakers in California. Adam fell in love with the industry when he was working at Austin Wine & Spirits as a wine buyer. After much knowledge gained and having tasted many of the best wines in the world, Adam decided to establish Siduri Wines in 1994, where he produced the first Pinot Noir from the Rose Vineyard in Anderson Valley. Siduri is a winery that has gained cult status due to the high-quality, premium, award-winning wines that this estate has been producing for almost 30 years.
Founded in 1998 in Sonoma, Novy is arguably the fun little brother of Siduri Winery. While Siduri is recognized worldwide for producing some of the best and most serious Pinot Noirs in the world, at Novy Winery, Adam and Dianna play with different grape varieties like Syrah and Zinfandel, to produce fun, vibrant and unique wines. “Novy,” (which translates from Czechoslovakian as new) in addition to being Dianna's family name, is the mantra of this winery: “Producing rare and new wines from new vineyards.”
Since its inception, Novy's wines have been recognized by some of the best wine critics in the world. Wine Spectator has featured them among the “Top 100 wines of the year” on different occasions.
Today, Novy focuses on producing wines inspired by Zinfandels and Rhone, including expressions from individual vineyards from some of Sonoma's most renowned sites. The wines are produced with minimal intervention, without filtering or clarifying; this to achieve the maximum expression of the terroir.
2015 was an outstanding year for the Russian River Valley. This vintage was blessed with a 94-point review by Wine Spectator, stating that the wines are “jammed with fruit; more concentrated and ageable than 2014.”
2015 Novy Family Winery Limerick Lane Vineyard Zinfandel Russian River Valley comes from the Limerick Lane Vineyard, a magical 30-acre vineyard located in the northeast of Sonoma's County Russian River Valley, where world-class Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Zinfandel wines are being produced.
This 100% Zinfandel it's an outstanding wine and is the perfect wine for foodies. Pair it with BBQ, turkey, beef stew, or a grilled burger. The best way to enjoy this wine is at a slightly chilled temperature.
Tasting Notes: 100% Zinfandel. See Critical Reviews for detailed tasting notes.
Energetic and plump, with personality, offering huckleberry, eucalyptus, and grilled sweet anise flavors that finish with zesty tannins. Drink now through 2023. 213 cases made. ~91 Wine Spectator.
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Zinfandel Estate has a super spicy nose with tons of red and blackberry preserves notes over hints of raisin cake, powdered cinnamon, sandalwood, and unsmoked cigars. The palate is full-bodied with plush tannins and oodles of freshness boosting the rich, spicy fruit, finishing long and earthy. 1,826 cases produced. ~91 Wine Advocate
The 2015 Zinfandel Limerick Lane Vineyard has turned out beautifully. To be sure, Siduri presents a decidedly understated expression of Limerick Lane, a vineyard that tends to produce brawny, powerful wines. Even so, 2015 is quite pretty, with hints of smoke, cherry jam, and mint that are quite inviting. ~90 Vinous Media.
The nose of this juicy wine conjures plum and raisin cake, and the palate follows with explosive red cherry and clove and cinnamon seasonings. Big and brawny, it's also softly textured and layered, winning one over in its head-on hedonism. ~90 Wine Enthusiast.
