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 »

Clearly, this wine is the result of Adam Tolmachs adopted IPOB philosophy. While this is not a big fruit-forward California wine, make no mistake, it is however, it is a wine for California win...

  • EM-I've had the Ridge Pagani and as you just mentioned the ... a 2010 Tercero The Climb-A Syrah/Petite Syrah Blend. Big nose of dark fruit (I could smell this all day and not drink it..... NOT!) Blackcherry, blueberry, touch of earthiness and spice, good weight and complexity in the mid-palate, long smooth finish. Very well done. I hope to visi... Read More

  • Somehow looks like a combo between Southern Rhone and Bordeaux and Northern ... franc, or the mourvedre and syrah?  Perhaps they could acknowledge their more recent California del Norte wine culture heritage and throw in some Zin as well. One wonders why they avoided Spanish (other than the garnacha), too, or is that still a colonial thing?  ;... Read More

  • Maury Sec Domaine Cabirau Cuvée Serge et Nicolas 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This was anything but "soft" or "elegant" as some write ups would suggest - this linear, fruity, tannic and rides good acidity. This need food. Red meat pasta comes to mind immediately. Read More
