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

  • Justin Vineyards & Winery Savant Paso Robles 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Savory and spicy on the nose and quite concentrated with dark black currant and blackberry preserve notes and powerful sweet spice. Richly flavorful and full on the palate, still this is deceptive and seems lighter than it is. Flavors are well developed and complex with dark chocolate and raspberry flavors set against darker black cherry and bla... Read More

  • That sounds better than the more expensive Martinelli Syrah Hop Camp Vineyard "Gravel Lens" (r?) that I had a while back. We opened up some discounted Mencia from Spain to go with our arroz con pollo last night and wife did not like it.  Too grapey.  Okay, even if it is made from grapes, a fair statement of what she doesn't like.  So we opened u...

  • Martinelli Syrah Terra Felice 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty garnet color in the glass. A medium-bodied red wine. It enters without much shouting, but then I detect a lot of red fruitcherry, raspberry. As the wine passes back the fruitiness diminishes to a neutral earthiness and, then I notice tannin and spiciness. A fairly short finish, but not unsatisfying. I paid $17 for this wine, and, so,...

  • Vidal-Fleury Côtes du Rhône 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Odd wine - intense aromas of red berry fruits, with a slight black berry note and pepper. The palate changes to dominate blackerry and dark cherry tannins, the pepper and spice follow nicely. It fades fast and is disappointing - 88 points - drink now - Paul Read More
