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 »

Syrah on Snooth

  • Xavier Vignon Rasteau 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Loads of Barnyard that fortunately dissipates and does not carry over to the palate. Moss, Earth, Slate, bits of roasted Plum and Cherry. Softens up the more it remains open, Somewhat hard to enjoy due to the initial aroma. Much, much better the 2nd day. Barnyard gone and more roasted dried plum and prunes, silky mouthfeel, quite delightful. Read More

  • Though I've not had the CP-H Rose, I do keep their Le Prestige - 55% Syrah/45% Grenache - in my cellar. As Greg said they are usually pretty solid ranging up to the very good bottling on an occasion.  They are usually good for 3-4 yrs. I personally think his opinion on age of rose is correct.                                            Read More

  • Brian initiated me back in 2012, and we had a visit while their 2009 Syrah was the current release, and before they expanded to the new wines...one could see adding to the Syrah was a good idea for entertaining. Beautiful property, talented people. Have tried the 2000, 07, and 09 Syrah, nothing else yet. Do have a mag of the 2010 Syrah which I h... Read More

  • It's vintage dependent. I really liked the 2012 Syrah, somewhat more than the 2013. Same with the Mondeuse. But I don't know if it's the additional time or the vintages. I love that she's doing those and isn't replanting with Cab, which is what I'd probably do. But in the end there's also a deliciousness factor that we have to include in the eva... Read More

  • Chloe Red Blend 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Inky purple/black hues and clear in the coloration. This wine has amazingly rich cocoa/milk chocolate aromas with background notes of molasses/toffee, super smooth oak wood and is has cream smoothness on the nostrils. Flavors follow suit, but with deep ripe, black berry goodness, vanilla bean and subtle spice. Mouthfeel is velvety, medium bod... Read More

  • Vintage Ink 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Vintage inky coloration, clarity is good, and just slightly brown hues around the rim. The aromas remind me of a Cab Sauv. and are of dark berry, chocolate, slightly boozy, and hints of strawberry sweetness. Flavors follow suit, and are jammy, strawberry, vanilla, woody oak and overall is nice! The mouthfeel is medium body, with smooth silky... Read More
