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 »

  • Lagier Meredith Syrah 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Big mouth-filling wine. Quite viscous. Some tart cranberry on the tip of the tongue, but, then, it becomes very savory. Drink now or hold. I just don't think you can go wrong with this one. Read More

  • Limerick Lane Syrah 'Headpruned Block' 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Very lean wine. Suggestion of black fruit, but only a suggestion, Also, suggestion of anise and of clove. Moderate tannins and acids. Fairly short finish. Interesting but not compelling wine. Read More

  • The Ojai Vineyard Sans Soufre a Joute 2017

    Snoothrank:

    50/50 Grenache/Syrah blend. No added sulfies. Quite dark plum color in the glass. A surprising almost smoky nose. I anticipated lots of fruit on the tongue, and, sure enough--blackberry and stone fruit A bit of spritz around the edges of the tongue--probably acid. Medium bodied and refreshing--probably justifies another shout ou to the ac... Read More

There were also Painted Rock Syrah about the same age 2009 or 2010.  I don't remember if they had any Red Icon from older vintages - I think not, actually; I am looking for the 2015 and it cannot be found easily - at least, not around here.The 2006 Alliance  (BWL) is ...

  • Baker Lane Syrah. Why? Because it has a nose of bacon and I'm having pizza with smoked pork loin and figured it would be good. Pizza dough was a little too wet, but it tastes good. I used an ale yeast and let it rise for three days so while it was hard to handle it tasted OK. And the Syrah was great.Closed out with a PN rosé that kind of sucked.... Read More

  • 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....

  • 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.
