Aside from making the holidays jollier, wine can also make them more decorative. The corks and bottles left over from so much summer Syrah make for great craft materials, and if you’ve found Snooth, there’s a good chance you've an ample supply.Read more »
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 »

Light aromas of blackberry and cassis, with a floral hint and a bit of cream. A medium bodied and flavorful wine, full of cherry and candied plum. Simple but well made and pleasant, full of California sun, bright fruit and soft tannins.

The 2010 edition of this wine is not so cheap in Canada (19.50 US), but just as good; the blueberry confection on the nose is followed by a smooth, elegant and balanced fruit melange that speaks volumes about Cotes du Rhone Villages (say, Rasteau). Th...

Fruit forward without being jammy. Good balance with enough tannins to be interesting. I'm a happy guy drinking this wine.
|Winery:||Taken Wine Co.|
|Region:||USA » California » Napa|
|Varietal:||Carignan , Grenache , Syrah|
Fun and savory aromas of mushroom, blackberry, earth and smoke. With enough acidity to balance the fruit, this is a well balanced wine, full of ripe blackberry fruit, deep black cherry, licorice, vanilla from the oak, velvety tannins, and a long finish.
|Region:||Italy » Tuscany|
|Varietal:||Sangiovese , Cabernet Sauvignon , Merlot , Syrah|
Colore rosso rubino intenso. Profumo intenso e complesso che ricorda la prugna matura, il bosso e la nocciola. In bocca il vino presenta un buon corpo, rotondo con tannini morbidi e vellutati, lungo e saporito.

I have never tried Syrah. Could someone tell me what it is like? Thanks
Fairly nice Rhone blend from Paso's Tablas Creek. The nose was dark berries with a touch of smoke and tar. The palate was a bit subdued and somewhat shutdown. There was some black cherry and ripe black plum along with a bit of cedar. The acidity was decent and the finish a tad short. May have needed some more time to breathe. Read More
A bit of French earthiness...just enough to realize terrior. Deeper red color, staying power in the fridge day 2 but power reduced a bit...wondering if it would make it to day 3. Good enough not to find out. A bit dry on the finish...priced at Costco under $10. Recommend Read More

Back on the syrah bandwagon. Was hoping this was going to be amazing but it is just OK. We picked this up at Talty Winery back in 2012 and it's been resting nicely ever since. Dark ripe berries on the nose with a hint of tobacco. Lots of ripe blackberry, a bit of earthiness, some cola, ripe black cherry and a touch of cedar on the palate. The ac... Read More
Not bad but not great Sonoma (Bennett Valley) syrah. Dark ripe berries on the nose with a hint of tobacco. Lots of ripe blackberry, a bit of earthiness, some cola, ripe black cherry and a touch of cedar on the palate. The acidity is fairly bright but the tannins are a bit short and the finish is of medium length. Read More

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>?
