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 »

    This was hot on initial opening. It may be past its prime. It seemed to mellow in the fridge for a while and then went hot again. Stick to the Merlot. Read More

  • 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...
