2003 Margerum Syrah Purisima Mountain Vineyard

I posted a note the other day on another bottle of this that was simply awful. I decided to see what another bottle would be like. The answer: much better, but still disappointing. Bright cherry/raspberry notes on the nose. Bright red fruits on the palate, not complex but pleasant. The fruit goes a bit flat on the mid-palate. Non-descript tannins, decent acidity and balance. Finishes short with cherry and spice. Fades quickly in the glass. Way better than the previous bottle, but still on the downhill slope. Drink up. "B-"
