When Business is Cut-throat

Amber Ridge Vineyard, located in the beautiful Russian River Valley of California, produces some of the world's best pinot noir & syrah grapes. Siduri & Novy Family Wines were so impressed by this young vineyard's fruit that they have sourced from it since it has bore fruit. They have produced many an outstanding wine from this site......that is until Nickel & Nickel/Far Niente bought it & refused to re-sign a contract with them. Before making the decision to not re-sign with Siduri/Novy they did make sure to ask about their winemaking decisions regarding this particular site. Adam Lee, being the friendly & open wine professional that he is, was happy to share this information with them. That is of course until he found out he wouldn't be getting anymore grapes from this site.

Good news is that if you are a Joe's Winos Wine Club member this month you will be getting the Novy Amber Ridge Vineyard Syrah 2006 Russian River Valley as your red wine selection. But if you like you better come back & get some more before its all gone. Once our supply runs out, thats it for good. If you want any after that you'll have to just pay the exorbitant Nickel & Nickel prices.
