Syrah

Parentage: Offspring of Dureza & Mondeuse Blanche
Aliases: Shiraz, Hermitage, Antourenein Noir, Candive, Marsanne Noir...
Grape Color: Black
Regions: Rhone (France), California AVAs, Australia
Type(s) of Wine the Grape Produces:

Syrah. Shiraz. Sirac. Schiras. Marsanne Noir. The names can go on endlessly to describe one of the most powerful red wine-producing grapes in the world.

The irony here is that Syrah’s origins could give Carmen Sandiego a run for her international wallet. Syrah’s deepest rooted history lies in the Rhone region of Southwestern France, as the wines that made this varietal famous were from hermitage, located in northern Rhone. The name “Shiraz,” however, gained popularity in Australia where this dark-skinned varietal has long been heavily planted. The birthplace of Syrah is still unknown, with many legends linking together both its aliases, suggesting origins in Iran, Rhone, and Australia.

Syrah is used primarily for producing strong red wines Read more »

  • I still have the program from that NSO performance.  The Britten piece was ... one of our Garrison Creek Syrah's from Washington state.  Lovely wine and drinking well.  Then it was time for a Cabernet Sauvignon from Repris.  These are good but not my favorite cabs.  I like them to present a little more frui Read More

  • Alandra Rose Portugal 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Medium light and restrained cranberry and strawberry aromas with a touch of sweet spice and cherry blossom on the nose. Nicely spiced in the mouth with cinnamon sugar, good acidity and ripe cherry and watermelon flavors on the lingering finish. Read More

  • Oh, boy.  Thanksgiving leftovers, tonight. In all honesty I think I like ... this one, Limerick Lane 2013 Syrah/Grenache a year and a half ago. I'm going to say, pretty much, the same today.  Very bright fruit--plum, blueberry, red cherry--on the tip of the tongue. Enough tannin to convince me this is wine--not fruit juice--balanced by good ac... Read More

  • Limerick Lane Syrah Grenache 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Similar to my notes a year and a half ago. Very bright fruit--plum, blueberry, red cherry--on the tip of the tongue. Enough tannin to convince me this is wine--not fruit juice--balanced by good acid. Read More

  • Venus la Universal Dido la Universal Montsant Garnacha 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Very noticeable minerality possibly at the cost of any fruit qualities. Decent middle but tailed of at the finish. Read More

  • Halcon Esquisto Yorkville Highlands 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Something of a volatile nose. Lots of red fruit on the tip of the tongue. Sadly, sweeter than I normally enjoy. When I hold the wine in my mouth for a few seconds, I get a stony flavor or sensation. This wine seems a little bit hot to me--not enough to really bother me, though. Read More

  • The USA has been starved of "REAL" Australian Shiraz, We built our name on Family wineries, Single Vineyard Estate Wines. Not these commodities. there are Great Australian wines available , just a little harder to find

  • Que Syrah, Syrah....A bold mouthful of mashed black fruit that dries out on the palate leaving a blanket of spiced wood to wrap around a forkful of rare venison...Nectar of the Gods....

  • Love the blend of this grape when combined with Grenache.

  • I like the spiciness and boldness of Syrah. I haven't tasted many, but the majority were from California, Russian River Valley. I would like to try a French Syrah. Any recommendations on a rocky and floral wine>?

  • How about the petit syrah's? Used to drink 1974 Paul Mason (?) by the case. Just incredible wine. My husband's Mom would ship it from CA to us in CT.
