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 »

  • Famille Perrin Cotes du Rhone Reserve 2012


    flows very nicely off of the palate yet something seems flat and earthy so this makes it mildly less inviting to think a bout another bottle. Read More

  • Bedrock Hudson Vineyard South T 'n' S Block Syrah 2012


    Big nose of dark berries. Yup, on the tongue, strong blackberry, but without sweetness. So, while I detect fruit on introduction this is not a fruit bomb. Rustic earthiness tames the berries. Gripping tannin and acid. Some tannic bitterness on the back of the palate, but Im certainly not going to kick this one out of bed for eating crackers. Read More
