Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

($22) Deep, bright-rimmed ruby. Rich and spicy on the nose, with dark berry aromas and notes of dried flowers, cracked pepper and graphite. Fat and sweet on the palate, but the blackberry and cassis flavors are focused and brisk, and nicely firmed by fine-grained tannins that knit smoothly with the lush fruit. Spicy, sweet and long on the finish, with good lift and a tangy mineral note adding brightness. (Bluewater Wine Company, Warwick, RI)

Wine Varietal: Syrah

While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
