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 »

  • Bedrock Hudson Vineyard South T'N'S-blocks Syrah 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Dark purple in the glass. Earthy, maybe a "forest floor" nose. I always get fruit on the tip of the tongue and, sure enough, lite red fruit--cherry, suggestion of strawberry, stone fruit. Then the earthiness happens, mid-palate. Nice tart acid. I could use a bit more backbone from tannin, but I'm still OK with this wine. Read More

  • Rosemount Estate Shiraz Mclaren Vale 2015

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is a deep purple color with cranberry hues around the edges....nice clarity as well and some bubbly goodness maintained around the edges of the liquid. Smells that remind me of blackberry, cassis, hints of cranberry, Earthy muttled spice, and woodsy chocolate. Flavors that are chocolatey, heavy berry and subtle tartness of cranberry,... Read More

  • Columbia Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Chalky, dusty aromas of blackberry and black cherry. In the mouth this has pleasant spice and nice fruit flavors of black cherry, blackberry, nicely balanced with a touch of spice and a pleasantly tannic finish. Read More

  • Columbia Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Dusty and dry but quite fruity aromas of plum, raisin and red currant. Nicely spiced and red fruited on the palate with raspberry, red currant and Bing cherry flavors with a touch of herb clinging to the edges and streaks of resinous tannin coming through on the chocolatey finish. 89 pts 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>?
