Covey Run Syrah 2003 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Mixed berries, plum, and herbs on the nose

Juicy core, medium-bodied

Plum and an odd plastic note on the finish

Something on the finish basically ruins the wine. I can't tell exactly what the flaw is, but I can taste something a little off. I don't think it was "just a bad bottle" because there was no evidence of anything foul on the nose.

It's a shame, actually, that this doesn't taste better. Covey Run makes some really good value wines in Washington State and I've especially enjoyed their whites. This bottle costs a modest $7-8, but take a pass. And raise a different glass!

Have you tried the 2004 Covery Run Syrah? I believe it was a better vintage than the 2003 and it's still under ten bones at your local Safeway.
