Novy Santa Lucia Highlands 2010 Syrah

Novy Santa Lucia Highlands 2010 Syrah, $26.99-$15.99, 88 points, appeared inky-black throughout, except near the transparent rim ring where it was a deep purple/red.
The nose needed some time to open-up, but once it did hints of violets, cedar, coffee bean, earth, and slightly sour plum were okay.
Full-bodied with good acidity, and mostly resolved tannin mirrored the nose well, but a hint of sassafras added another interesting note.
Finished long on an accelerating spice, Cholula, and hints of the 13.9% alcohol and tobacco.
