A bright and spicy Zinfandel from very old vines in the famous sub-region of Russian River Valley, Sonoma. This Zinfandel complex but also lively and refreshing, being grown in a sea-cooled zone of Sonoma mostly known for Pinot Noir. But the vine age here is huge, the main source being the Jensen Lane Vineyard which was planted in 1915! Superb value in a classy, modern style -- drink now or age a while.

Its Origins

Novy is a label of the Siduri brand, which is run by the Jackson Family portfolio of estates. Based in the Sonoma Valley, Siduri released thei first hand-made, family owned Pinot Noir wines in 1994. From the outset their loving attention in the vineyard and winery have gained them critical acclaim, with single-vineyard Pinot Noir continuing to be the focus of the Siduri label, which is still run by its original owners but was purchased by the Jackson Family in 2015. Under the Novy label, Siduri also make reds from the extraordinary old vine Zinfandel vineyards which occupy the warmer sites in the area.

What The Critics Say

91/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"The 2016 Zinfandel (Russian River Valley) is a very pretty, appellation-level wine from Novy. Pliant, silky and beautifully perfumed, the 2016 has so much to offer. Lifted floral notes add brightness to the red berry and purplish fruit. Best of all, this juicy, mid-weight Zinfandel offers serious quality for the money." Drink 2018 - 2024

90/100 Wine Enthusiast

"Floral in lovely ways, this big, bold and broadly expansive wine is hugely structured, with plenty of tannin and strong black-fruit flavor. Good supportive acidity keeps it balanced in the glass."

90-92/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Lisa Perrotti-Brown (2015 vintage)

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Zinfandel Russian River Valley offers expressive blackberry, black cherry and baking spice notes with a touch of licorice. Full-boded, concentrated and purely fruited in the mouth, it has a gorgeous velvety texture and a delightful burst of blackberry flavors on the long finish."
