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 »

  • Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape la Crau the Old & Rare Wine Company 2000

    Snoothrank:

    Rating 84; Nose is balanced but weak. Taste dry and pale without any remarkable taste sensations. This wine advertised itself as 10 years old. They should have sold it 7 years ago. Good trick of the reseller to relabel that wine. Too expensive $ 10.- At Costco Read More

  • Bogle Vineyards Red Blend California Phantom 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Opened this wine at work, on a Saturday for a weekly tasting. Poured into tasting cups a dark ruby red color, which glowed when held to the light. I immediately came the the conclusion that the wine, even though an '07 vintage, needed more time to age. When we opened this wine, aromas of dark fruits, black cherry, spice, smoked chicory, leath... Read More

  • Blackstone Winery Syrah California NV

    Snoothrank:

    Matches the description on the overview very well. A bit peppery and well-rounded. A good syrah for the price. Nice to try for a Blackstone Merlot drinker who wants something a little different to advance their palate to the next level. Syrah is my favorite red grape. Read More

    Id say this is a medium-bodied red that doesnt really taste like cabernet or shiraz, but rather just tastes pleasant. It isnt silky or . . . http://wineguider.wordpress.com/2010/07/27/black-opal-shiraz-cabernet-review/ Read More
