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 »

  • Kabatepe Kirmizi Red 2013

    Snoothrank:

    With a mixture of native Turkish vines (Karasakiz) and imported French varieties (Syrah; Cabernet Sauvignon; Merlot) this wine evokes a freezer chest of cherries and cranberries on the nose. On the palate, there is a slightly tannic bed of unripe sweet cherry, with a moderately lengthy finish. Very decent, and first tasted at Marquis Wines Van... Read More

  • BLM - I love petite syrah - Jaffurs, Ridge, Robert Baile, Stag's Leap on the the high end Spellbound, Pedroncelli on the low end.  All are different with Ridge being the softer more (please excuse the word) female expression of the grape.I've had the Parallel 39 and agree with your notes - that's why it's not on list.

Here are my notes: very, very berry on the nose, blackberry like and smell memories of a Beaujolais got me worried what was to come next but it was a mini-explosion of flavor-- almost Bordeaux like--  and then back to the cheap berry taste.  WTF? Overall very pleasant , but totally unexpected. Drunk with v... Read More

  • For some people, the food and wine pairing is an art and of utmost ... Lamb is ... Lamb is generally great with Syrah or a blend of it like Grenache/Syrah, or even Chateauneuf du Pape.  Beef can take on Cab sav, etc.  This may be a little much to consider, so my advice would be to ask your server or sommelier (if they have one) as to a wine pa...
