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 »

  • Guigal Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2009


    Pretty decent but not great CdP from Guigal. Nice dark berries on the nose along with a touch of tar. More dark fruit on the tongue - ripe plum, blackberry, black cherry, a touch of anise and medium acidity. The tannins are a bit tight and grainy, may need more air or more time in the bottle. Was hoping for a bit more complexity but that might c... Read More

  • Chateau Mont-Redon Côtes du Rhône Réserve 2012


    Drank pop and pour. Mixed red and black fruits on the nose. Fruity on the palate but not jammy. Medium acidity as well as a little tannins toward the finish. Second day fruit turned to sour cherry. Easy to drink wine. Read More

  • The USA has been starved of "REAL" Australian Shiraz, We built our name on Family wineries, Single Vineyard Estate Wines. Not these commodities. there are Great Australian wines available , just a little harder to find

  • Que Syrah, Syrah....A bold mouthful of mashed black fruit that dries out on the palate leaving a blanket of spiced wood to wrap around a forkful of rare venison...Nectar of the Gods....

  • I like the spiciness and boldness of Syrah. I haven't tasted many, but the majority were from California, Russian River Valley. I would like to try a French Syrah. Any recommendations on a rocky and floral wine>?
