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 »

  • Nuna Syrah Lujan de Cuyo 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Dusty, dry and brooding earth and smoke aromas with black cherry and blackberry fruit notes. Tart sweet spice flavors of black cherry and blackberry on the palate with puckering acidity and drying tannins sucking all of the liquid out of the mouth on the finish, leaving behind only hot spice and candied licorice and cola notes.

  • 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...
