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.

    OK wine, but not my favorite Bedrock. Kind of a "unsweeted prune" entry. Then some pretty serious tannin. If you like a "rustic" wine, this might do it for you. Lots of dustiness. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Blend of 50% Syrah and 50% Grenache. The nose and appearance is mostly Syrah as is the palate though softened by the Grenache. Taste is of black and blue fruit with tart acid and a peppery finish. Read More

  • The only grapes that I can for sure figure out is the Zin (of course), syrah, grenache and the strength of the petite sirah...after looking it up it says cabernet sauvignon and charbono (bonarda) are used also.  The charbono I get - I do like, especially the Lamadrid from Argentina; but the cabby I missed out on totally.  Maybe the time in the b...

    Snoothrank:

    Found this sitting around a didn't realize it was a '13 bottling. What a nice surprise it turned into. After sitting for 3 yrs without being bothered it morphed into this viscous, jammy dark cherry dominated wine that finished with good tannic/acidic balanced and a mini-porty syrupy swallow. Maybe they need to sit? 85 points - Paul 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...
