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 »

  • Here's the funny thing:  For just a minute, Napa Ridge Cab was made ... into vinegar. Tensley Syrah is really bad, but it gets great marks from Parker.  Maybe all my bottles were off.  If JD still has the one he bought from me for his dad, I will buy it back and destroy it.  Coelho sold Dois Hermanos PN as a mystery wine from Garagiste and it ...

  • Montes Alpha Syrah Chile 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Chalky earth and red fruit aromas with notes of powdered sugar and licorice, warm baking spice and a bit of heat. Tart and chewy in the mouth, this shows a lot of character with ripe black cherry and raspberry notes, zesty acidity and dark chocolate, with pleasant herbal notes and a huge load of spice - cinnamon, clove and a creamy finish. This ... Read More

  • Careful, OT--you've been Snark-free for months, but sarcasm is a gateway ... the night was a CG Di Arie Syrah from the Sierra Foothills consumed with a farro salad and burger.  Why ironic?  Because I was at Drake's Dealership, the new flagship restaurant of the Drake's Brewery, which makes really good beer.  So good, in fact, that DVogler enjo...
