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

  • Cline Family Cellars Syrah Sonoma County 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Concentrated black berry aromas of savory earth and creamy oak. Black cherry and blackberry fruit flavors on the palate with a zesty acidity and liberal spice box flavors through the mid palate on to a tingling finish of jam, chocolate and toasted espresso beans. Read More

  • Michael David Syrah 6th Sense 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet and viscous on the tongue. Not the wine that I have followed for years. Not sure if it's just a flawed bottle or not. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    The baby fat has gone away in this wine. 14.5% ABV and 85% Grenache. Garnet in color. The nose is light bing cherry with herbal notes. A mix of sweet and red fruits with some light tartness, some resolved tannin and a long garrique laced finish. Read More

  • DM, what would you like to know?We've been to Paso many times over the last ... hold. Now there are mostly syrah and GSM blends for reds and Roussanne, Marsanne and Grenache Blanc for whites.

  • 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...
