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 »

Syrah on Snooth

  • 19 Crimes Red Blend 2013

    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

  • Cline Family Cellars Cashmere Red Blend California 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Dusty cocoa and vanilla aromas with light red berry fruit. Surprisingly soft on the palate with touches of crushed flower and perfume amidst tart red fruit and big bunches of berries, finishing with a bit of spice and an earthy chocolate note. Read More

  • Ravenswood Besieged 2014

    Snoothrank:

    A Ravenswood project and a veritable whos who of deep red grape varieties. Surprisingly restrained yet still a touch heated on the nose with spicy blackberry and black currant aromas and pleasant sweet spice. Quite fruity on entry and intriguingly diverse, beginning with blueberry, black cherry and blackberry fruit before releasing a swath of ta... Read More

  • Writing is a cathartic exercise. The same can be said about tasting wine. ... ... of olives in cool-climate Syrah. As I write tasting notes, I emphasize that my description is solely my impression of the wine that may or may not be the same for anyone else or the next time I taste. It's rare to recreate the same tasting experience twice. A tas... Read More

  • Menghini Syrah 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Prunes make this Syrah a bit better than Merlot (http://www.snooth.com/wine/menghini-cabernet-merlot-2016/?t=reviews&r=4329599) from that winery but still it costs amazingly a lot for such a poor quality. Read More

  • Rusack Syrah Ballard Canyon Estate 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Light red fruit on entryplum, mostly. Savoriness, some earthiness, very moderate tannin and very moderate acid. An enjoyable, easy-to-drink wine. Definitely a drink now wine, not a candidate for taking up cellar space. Read More

  • Kirkland Signature Cotes du Rhone Villages 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Very pretty wine, plumish in color and nicely pure. When first opened the syrah was front and center with lots of blue and black fruit finishing with some acid and some noticable tannin. With air the grenache stepped forward and offered some cherry with a soft finish. This is the third vintage of this wine I've drank and if you enjoy cotes du rh... Read More
