Syrah Tasting Notes:  very dark and flavorful grape that is easy to work with – Healthy, early ripening, resistant to mildew and rot, suitable for winemaking in a variety of styles. At is best, Syrah can slug it out with high end Cabernet and Pinot Noir. As a single varietal, Syrah is the basis for the great reds of the Northern Rhône: as an ingredient in blends, it contributes much of the character and aging potential for wines of the Southern Rhone. Shiraz (Australian for Syrah) has a distinguished history Down Under, being the most widely planted grape in that country. Blackberry, pepper, plum, black currant, grassy, black peppers, licorice, clove, thyme, bay leaf, herbal, sandalwood, musky and earthy. Oak provides vanilla, coconut, smoke, toast and tar. Aging can add cedar, cigar box and leather. Made full bodied, dry.
