esbrown reviewed Palmeri Syrah Napa Valley Stagecoach Vineyard 2003 on September 10, 2007
Super inky with lots of concentration, the '03 Palmeri was all over the map. The nose had fine elements of dark fruit, warm rocks and charred earth, as well as a slightly sour note, aromas of corn chips and alcohol heat. The palate is rich, round and chewy, with lots of dark, briary fruit leading to a finish that had so much dry oak that it tasted like a tongue depressor. Too erratic for me to recommend.
