External Reviews for Santa Rita 120 Syrah
New wine in Santa Ritarsquo;s value 120 lineup, the 2003 Shiraz is perky, with cherry and plum fruits; medium-bodied with a soft, lightly spiced finish.
Fermented in stainless steel but aged briefly on heavily toasted oak staves, this is one big, fruity red. The nose is roasted, offering coffee and charbroiled beef. The palate is young but smooth, with pounds of berry fruit. Itrsquo;s heavily oaked, but the fruit can handle it.
