Mcmanis Family Vineyards Syrah California 2003

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Rather soft and thick in texture, a low-tannin, low-acid wine with flavors of sweetened coffee, cherry compote and rhubarb pie. Easy and gentle.

Ripe and oaky, with blueberry and cola flavors wrapped in a wash of coconut and vanilla that finishes with tangy structure. Drink now through 2005.

The 2003 Syrah reveals notions of smoke, bacon fat, and cassis, along with medium body, soft tannin, and a compact, but pleasant finish. It is best consumed over the next 1ndash;2 years.
