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.

    Snoothrank:

    Big wine - bold berry notes, pepper and gamey notes, with spice and sage, a touch of chocolate and a healthy dose of tannins this built for aging. Drink or hold - 93 points - Paul Read More

  • Rockpile Winery Syrah Madrone Spring Vineyard 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Nice, medium-strength, highly drinkable wine. Blackberry and plum flavors on entry. Something of a dusty sensation, but nothing annoying. I guess I could describe it as earthiness, but that isnt quite it. In fact, it prevents the fruit from tasting syrupy. Nice acid tartness. Quite sedate tannin. No harm in holding this one, but I am happ... Read More

  • Venison sausage?  I'd go Gigondas or CdP myself, with GregT on the fruit.  Syrah a la N. Rhone is also a good match, as is an aged CCR or BdM.  Good on you, BLM, for making sausage. Matching the music to the wine, too?  Now we're getting into the esoterica.  Pretty soon we'll be factoring in the decor, too.  Read More

  • Mending Wall 2014 Mortar & Stone My recollection is that this is a blend of Syrah and Zinfandel.  What's not to like there?  This one leads very prominently with dark fruit--blackberry, blueberry, plum.  There is some acidic "spritziness" on the tip and around the edges of the tongue.  Not unexpectantly, there is noticeable tannic pucker.  Yet, ...

  • Made my first ever homemade sausage (venison) celebrated end of classes for the semester, ate said sausage with a nice glass of burgundy, now listening to Glen Gould Goldberg Variations (first recording). What would you be drinking? For me the choice was obvious.  Read More
