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.

  • Finca Luzon Jumilla 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Always fresh and inviting this is no exception. Juicy red and dark berry fruits mingle in nuanced ways that allow a touch of pepper to flow adding to moderate tannins and always good acidity. 87 points - drink now - Paul Read More

  • EM-We really like Mike's Syrah(s). Life is good indeed. It's been hot, muggy and wet in South Florida so plenty of water, scotch and beer. Yesterday we had field seats to the Coldplay Concert. What a performance!!! (Yes, we saw them in New York as well last month.)Pictures from an iPhone:  Read More

  • Domaine Chante Cigal Cotes du Rhone Vielles Vignes 2014

    Medium weight with rich ripe fruit and low acidity. The added Carignan give this wine an added tannic bite and lets it stand out from the others. Read More

  • Castillo de Molina Shiraz Reserva 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Pours a slightly murky, strawberry/cherry color with rusty hues in the background, and tints of copper sediment that even finely clings to the inside of the bottle. The aromas are of blackcurrant, Earthy notes, smooth spice, French wood barrel and flavors that follow suit....dry berry, dried orchard fruit, subtle spice, dusty soil....Rustic. S... Read More

  • Pruett Taylor's Reserve Estate Syrah 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Quite muted red berries on the tip of the tongue. A little bit of bitterness around the edges and the tip of the tongue. A retro-nasal sensation that suggests eucalyptus. Surprisingly light on tannins. Nothing really bad about this wine, but, also, not, particularly, memorable. 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...
