About the Winery:
The Novy family roots trace back to Czechoslovakia where NOVY means “NEW.” It is in the spirit of family, heritage and the best new wines from new vineyards that Novy Wines was born.

It all started when Adam Lee and Dianna Novy met as employees at a well-known luxury department store in Dallas, Texas. Adam managed the fine wine program and Dianna oversaw the epicurean offerings. She was smart and savvy. He was fun and had access to good wine. Romance flourished, and with it, a world of new adventures. As Adam and Dianna bonded over their love of wine and passion for learning, they headed west from Texas to Sonoma to pursue their dream of making wine.

In 1988, as a sequel to Adam’s much lauded Siduri Pinot Noirs, Adam and Dianna founded Novy Family Wines together with Dianna’s parents and extended family. 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. Each harvest the Novy gang joined Adam and Dianna in California for a new vintage and a new chance to do what they loved most with the people they loved most.

With a focus on Syrah and Zinfandel, Novy Family Wines quickly established itself as a top producer. In 2005, The Wine Spectator called the Novy’s Syrahs “stellar” and named the 2003 Novy Sonoma County Syrah to its prestigious TOP 100 WINES OF THE YEAR.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Slightly more vivid and aromatic, with the signature acid profile of the vintage (and vineyard), the 2011 Syrah Rosella'ss Vineyard dishes out complex notes of black currants, sappy green herbs, mint, licorice and underbrush to go with a firm, beautifully focused palate that carries ripe tannin and bright acidity." -Jeb Dunnuck (Aug 2013)

91 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2011 Syrah Rosella's Vineyard impresses for its vibrancy and focus. Dark raspberries, mint, licorice and savory herbs all jump from the glass. Here the fruit takes on distinctly red-toned hues to match the wine's delicate personality. This is a terrific showing in a vintage in which Syrah struggled." -Antonio Galloni (July 2013)

91 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Glass-staining purple. Sexy aromas of blackberry, blueberry, Indian spices, roasted coffee and licorice. Sweet, juicy and concentrated, offering deeply pitched black and blue fruit, fruitcake and mocha flavors. This ripe, broad, appealingly sweet syrah spreads out nicely on the finish, which features dusty, fine-grained tannins." -Josh Raynolds (Nov/Dec 13)
