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.

  • The Ojai Vineyard Roll Ranch Syrah 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Something of a floral nose. Red fruitsuggestion of strawberry--on entry, maybe some violets. A quite lean wine. Notable acid tartness. Acidity and leanness makes, of course, for a pretty refreshing wine. Will, probably be best only with the lighter pairings. Read More

  • Charles & Charles Cabernet Sauvignon & Syrah 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Really good and very approachable. Plenty of fruit, cassis, a little coffee, anise, vanilla. The tannins are there to add a grip to the body and fill out with a dark cherry note intermingled with driving acidity. Well done - drink through 2018 - 90 points - Paul Read More

  • Running late on reviews and postings.  A friend came over, my favorite ...

  • Zinfandel for some reason reminds me of porta-potty deodorizer. I think if I never smelled a porta-potty I would like it though! I can always taste Zinfandel in blended Italian table wines and it turns me off, although there are a few brands I like that do have a little Zinf but mainly Merlot.It has a rose or flower scent and taste to it that ju...

  • Finca Luzon Jumilla 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Always fresh and inviting this is no exception. Juicy red and dark berry fruits mingle in nuanced ways that allow a touch of pepper to flow adding to moderate tannins and always good acidity. 87 points - drink now - Paul Read More
