Where Syrah and Shiraz Call Home

Syrah's historical home is the Rhone region of France, where the grape makes spicy, rich, darkly delicious wines.

Syrah also makes tasty wines in Australia, where it goes by the name Shiraz. Australian versions are typically big, bold, and spicy with jammy fruit and aromas of leather and black fruit.

Syrah also excels in Washington state, where its muscular aspects are typically tempered by a touch of refreshing acidity, and in California, where styles vary. In general, you can expect California and Washington Syrah to be a little less powerful than big Australian versions.

Aromas: Raspberry, black or white pepper, blackberry, red or black currant, cassis, jam, smoke, leather, tar, coffee
