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 »

  • Halcon Elevacion 2017

    Snoothrank:

    A quite restrained wine that opens with just a suggestion of blackberries. Intrestingly, I am getting a lot of earthiness. A lot of acid spritz on the edges of the tongue. A very good wine today that will be better in the coming years. Read More

  • Scherrer Russian River Valley Syrah

    Snoothrank:

    Terrific wine. A big nose of dark berries and violets. Gentle blackberry flavor on the tip of the tongue.Nice level of acidity shows up with back-of-the-tongue tartness Some savoriness. Some tannin, but, certainly, not over the top. A fairly full-bodied wine. Drinking well, now, but I wish I had more. Read More

  • Musar Jeune 2017

    Snoothrank:

    The Famille Hochar produces the Musar Jeune line (this one is the red or rouge) ... The blend of Cab Sauvignon, Syrah and Cinsault made with traditional methods throws a heavy sediment, is opaque red in the glass, and fills the nostrils with black cherry, wet rich earth and blackberry jam. Entry is mouth-filling - with cassis dominating. Mod... Read More

  • Epoch Estate Wines Estate Blend 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Terrific wine. Dark fruit on opening--berry, stone fruit. Some herbalness--sage. Some may be intimidated by the 15% ABV, but I do not find it to be hot, although there is a "sweetness" that can probably be attributed to alcohol. A big, full-bodied wine with good structure. Lingering, pleasant aftertaste. Read More

  • The Ojai Vineyard Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Interesting wine. For those who complain about new world wines being hyper-fruit forward, take a look at this one. It has only the slightest suggestion of fruit. What is there suggests blackberry or plum, but it only suggests. Nothing, at all, suggests sweetness. Some savoriness, mid-palate. Some pepperiness. No tannin to speak of. There ... Read More

  • Bedrock Wine Co. California Syrah 2018

    Snoothrank:

    I see that I commented on this wine in February. A few months later, I am inclined to be more generous. Still a significant upfront red fruit, but it does not seem syrupy as I previously reported. I am still appreciating the good acid level that makes this a "grown up" wine. Again, for $20, this wine is more than just fine. 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>?

  • How about the petit syrah's? Used to drink 1974 Paul Mason (?) by the case. Just incredible wine. My husband's Mom would ship it from CA to us in CT.
