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 Wine Co. T 'n' S Blocks Hudson Vyd. South Syrah 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Candied fruit--blackberry, plum, citrus (lime) peel. However, the "canddied" descriptor is sufficiently offset by lively acid. A medium-bodied wine.Somewhat lean. Solid wine Read More

  • Beckmen Syrah Purisima Mountain Vineyard Ballard Canyon 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Opaque purple color with a "rasiny" nose. A very subtle introduction of dark fruit, but what is really noticeable is acid "spritziness" around the edges of the tongue. Some spiciness with suggestions of cinnamon, nutmeg clove, but also a hint of orange, Fairly full-bodied, although, certainly not the biggest wine, Still some unresolved tannin. Read More

  • Epoch Estate Wines Estate Blend 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Opens with red fruit--cranberry, red plum, strawberry. Acid tartness led me to calling out cranberry. Some baking spices. Tannin seems to sneak up on me. Good wine. Read More

  • Halcon Alturas Yorkville Highlands 2018

    Snoothrank:

    Dark berry fruit. Then I notice that this wine is more full-bodied than previous vintages. Very interesting. Also seems to be more tannic than previous efforts. Over the last five or six years I have enjoyed this bottling, but I really like the direction this is going. A much more fulfilling wine. Multiple thumbs up, Read More

  • Myriad Whole Cluster las Madres Vineyard Syrah 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Delightful nose of violets and berries. Quite subdued berry--blueberry, blackberry--fruit on entry. Not as tart as my previous review in 2018. On the surface this doesn't seem like a particularly sophisticated wine, but surface observations may be faulty. Mid-to-rear palate I am getting retro-nasal sensations that mimic the nose and seem like... Read More

  • That was weird, take a break and  someone steps in for you. Mark, ... ... fresh tasting but that Syrah will likely hang on for 15 years or more. It’s 100% whole cluster and only 12.5 abv. Wines can have big flavors without being fruit bombs Zuf. California still getting no love. That’s ok, more wine for me.glad you liked it Mark, I haven’t op... Read More

  • Halcon Alturas Yorkville Highlands 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Opens with nice dark fruit, then, some noticeable salinity. Nice tart acid fills the mouth. Interestinly, I had he full cluster fermented version of this wine (Elevacion), yesterday. This one is a "bigger" wine in every way. Much thicker mouth feel and much more full-bodied. I prefer this one. Read More

  • Halcon Elevacion 2016

    Snoothrank:

    100% Whole Cluster fermented in contrast to Halcon's other Syrah bottling, Alturas.I know I have tried the '16 Alturas, but I cannot find any notes. So, any comparison is going to have to come from memory. I do remember that there was a Halcon Alturas that did not really whelm me. It had to have been the '16. This wine is quite lean. There ...

  • 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>?
