The Russian River Valley is home to some of the oldest Zinfandel vineyards in California, and two sites that contributed to this wine date back to the early 1900's! Old vines like these provide exceptional fruit quality and concentration, while maintaining bright, crisp acidity, which is key for a well-balanced wine. Other notes include plum, cherry compote, cinnamon and soft tannins.
In 1988, as a sequel to Winemaker Adam Lee’s much lauded Siduri Pinot Noirs, he and Dianna Novy, along with her parents and extended family, founded Novy Wines. Novy was born to capture Adam and Dianna’s mutual affection for Syrah and Zinfandel, and to engage the entire Novy family in the art of making wine together.
