Fetzer Syrah Mendocino County Valley Oaks 2003

Member Review by Austin Sung:

Good table wine. Easy and ready to drink. Aged and matured color. Tanin is too weak. The lack of tanin is not balanced with its acidity. Plum, vanilla, chocolate smells are outstanding and smooth. Rich aroma is very good, However, the shiraz texture in itself does not show its spicy reality. 13.5% alcohol is round only in the beginning. It goes well with Korean rice cake.I recommend to drink For best tasting, I suggest to drink within 50 min. (maximum 90 min.) after opening.
