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 »

  • A new label, not yet released but any day now, that I got a sneak preview of. They do a Syrah heavy GSM, a Grenache heavy GSM, a Grenache and a Roussanne. This one is the Syrah heavy version. Paso Robles fruit in the Saxum mold just not as polished. There's probably as much alcohol in this bottle as there was in all three bottles from last night... Read More

  • BerserkerDay purchase from Lagier Meredith, made from the Mondeuse grape. Hit ... across as kind of Cab and syrah - a touch of that mustiness along with ripe black cherry.  Flavors come out with more ripe black cherry, ripe plum, some vegetal notes, a little bit of heat, medium acidity and smooth but prevalent tannins. This is not overly compl... Read More

    Nose of red fruit. On the tongue Im getting a little bit of cherry, but more ... ... have expected for a Zin/Syrah blend. Great tannin. Its funny, Ive never described tannin as great, before, but in this wine the tannin provides substance. So, at the rear of the palate, I am getting the robustness that I did not see at the front of the pa... Read More
