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 »

  • On the tail end of our heatwave. Had an out of town visitor for dinner. We killed this magnum of Syrah Rosé from Limerick Lane. Easy repurchase.   Read More

  • Orin Swift "The Prisoner" Napa Valley Red Blend 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Structured and layered, and well beyond it's supposed prime, this was great. Blackberry, dustiness, spice, dark cherry, mocha with tolerable tannins and great acidity. Just shows what cellaring properly can do. 92 points - drink now - Paul Read More

Wine ...  with cabby, syrah, petite sirah, carbono added to the zin.  As a result there are, obviously, different layers and aromas.  However, the same blackberry and dark cherry are both present and well done.  Actually, I was blown away the The Prisoner reson...

  • Peter Lehmann Clancy's Barossa 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Excellent coloration of dark cherry, hints of ruby and tinges of purple around the edging. Aromas and flavors are deep, with rustic spice, black fruits/currant and some oakiness on the finish, with slight boozy heat. Smooth mouthfeel and a finish that is dry and reasonably clean. I recommend this one and feel that it is a good representation ... Read More

  • Chateau Pesquie Terrasses Ventoux 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Light and effusive at the start this grows with a little time in the glass. Plenty of cherry and red plum with a touch of spice, anise and moderate tannins pair with good acidity and a relatively short but lively aftertaste. Drink now - 89 points - Paul Read More

  • Jim Barry the Lodge Hill Shiraz Clare Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Bold but smooth with big blackberry fruit, spice, earth, chocolate on the nose and following well to the palate. This joined by sneaky perimeter flash of caramel, chewy tannins and a pop of acidity frame and drive a lengthy aftertaste. Drink or hold - 91 points - Paul Read More
