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.

Juicy, fresh and lively with buoyant flavors of red currant preserves and bright cherries, good acidity and a drying mid palate of textured tannins and spice that slopes off into a chocolate, earthy, cranberry and black currant finish that lingers with a...

  • Lagier-Meredith Syrah 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Nicely sedate levels of dark fruit on entry. Equally nice levels of structural tannin and acid. Very much full-bodied. Very pleasant, albeit brief, aftertaste. Interestingly, alcohol burn sensation lingers on the tongue for several seconds after swallowing. My little gripe notwithstanding, I think this is a well-made, savory wine that is easy... Read More

  • Myriad Syrah Sangiacomo Vineyard Petaluma Gap 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This wine opens with a terrific hit of tart stone fruitplum. Certainly, a full-bodied wine. However, moderate, at the maximum, on the tannin which is balanced by moderate, at the maximum, acid. I find this a fun-to-drink wine that doesnt require a ton of oenological esoterica to enjoy. Read More
