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 on Snooth

  • Tonight we attended the Symphony at The Kennedy Center.  The highlight ... ... poured me a very nice Syrah (2009 Howling) and Sandra had a white wine, the 2015 Broglia (Cortese is the varietal).  Both were very tasty.  We then had our wines brought to our table where we had a nice view of the Potomac River as the sun was starting to set.  Our...

  • Lagier Meredith Syrah Mt. Veeder 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Quite dark purple in the glass. Slightly floral nose, but, really, more dark fruit. Nice hit of tart dark fruit on entry. Not particularly big tannins as the wine passes back, but slightly bitter puckeriness is noticed. Im a bit surprised that the tartness noticed on the tip of the tongue seems to diminish quickly as the wine passes back. Read More

  • SAVED California 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Savory mineral notes on the nose with a fiery heat and a rich cream. On the palate there's a lot more fruit, with red currant, cherry and cranberry flavors, a nice spice and a bit of earthiness, some light menthol and a dark chocolate finish. Read More

    Wine review by Mr Dolce


  • MJet's report on a Las Madres syrah tempted me to go for another one from Las Madres, but at the last moment I went for another one of my favorite vineyards--Alder Springs. I love the delicate introduction of fruit that I get from this wine--blackberry, plum and, maybe, pomegraniite.  It suggests these fruity flavors.  It doesn't slap you in in ...

  • Bedrock Alder Springs Syrah 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Oh, wow. A nice, light introduction of fruitblackberry, plum, maybe, even, pomegranate. Nice savoriness as the wine passes back. Noticeable, but very sedate tannin. Nice, lip-smacking acid gives it freshness. There will be no Day 2 report on this wine. ;-) Read More

  • Provence is one of the oldest wine producing regions in the world. While ... ... ... is a blend crafted of Syrah, Cinsault, Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Tibouren. The blending process is up to the discretion of the winemaker. Furthermore, even the process used to make rosé (direct pressing or maceration/bleeding) is up to each winemaker. However,... Read More

  • Discovered a nice Petit Syrah from Rosenblum Cellers, Heritage series. From the East Bay in California. Very nice, several layers, assertive, but smooth. Affordable at about $15.

  • I have been growing Syrah in California for 24 years and I have come to love cool climate Syrah such as Radio Coteau's Cherry Camp. The vineyard is planted on a ridge to the east of Occidental California. The 2005 wine is remarkable in its peppery black cherry aroma, smooth in the mouth and great finish. Another great cool area is Bennett Va...
