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 »

  • Well, with spousal approval, I ordered two bottles of the 2013 Syrah Grenache.  $72 + about $35 for shipping and tax.   Read More

  • I just joined the Limerick Lane mailing list.  Thanks for the tip.I could order the 2013 Syrah / Grenache but the shipping cost is pretty extreme.  You order one bottle and you basically pay for two.  It gets better as you increase the number of bottles, but I don't see a sweet spot where the shipping stops increasing at such an extreme rate.  T...

  • Al, ordering from Limerick Lane is a no-brainer.  The worst LL wine I have ... was really wowed by the LL Syrah/Grenache.  She was pleased to hear that I had another bottle of it.  Also, for what it's worth, I see no reason to let that remaining LL Syrah/Grenache lay on it's side for years while I'm waiting for it to reach some theoretical sens...

  • Benjamin Darnault Maris la Senche 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A recent Naked Wines Selection. Love that Dark Purple Red opaqueness in the Glass. Opens with loads of Mint and Thyme; then on to a smoky Blueberry/Plum; then finishes with Fig and Stewed Blue/Black Fruit. The Blue/Black fruit carries over to the mouth, with a long finish of a bit of Concorde Grape, Oak, and Honey/Smoke. Still bit of an alcohol ... 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...
