Flaunt is the latest project from Dianna Novy. The name Flaunt represents Dianna's attitude in life towards fulfilling her wine making dreams. After 23 years of being a co-owner and co-winemaker, this is her first solo wine project. In 1994 she co-founded Siduri Winery and in 1998 she co-founded Novy Family Winery. She made wine at both wineries until selling the brands to Jackson Family Winery in 2015.
"The Sexton Vineyard Pinot Noir is a beautiful wine with bright and lively aromatics. This wine is big and yet balanced with good density and concentration showing decent tannin and acidity with flavors of cranberries balanced out with raspberries and darker fruits with the earthy forest floor notes for which the Sexton Vineyard is known. This is a very complex and complete Pinot." Winemaker Dianna Novy
2019 Flaunt Sexton Vineyard Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
"The 2019 Pinot Noir Sexton Vineyard comes from a site on the Sonoma Coast and offers up a great perfume of ripe strawberry and framboise fruits intermixed with plenty of spice, forest floor, sassafrass, and floral notes. Medium-bodied and vibrant on the palate, it has a terrific spine of acidity, good concentration, and enough tannins to evolve for upwards of a decade. This complex, elegant Pinot Noir is well worth seeking out."
