Syrah or Shiraz

Shiraz or syrah are two names for the same variety. Europe vintners only use the name syrah. Food pairings: meat (steak, beef, wild game, stews, etc.) Districts: syrah excels in California, in Australia, and in France’s Rhone Valley. Typical taste in varietal wine: aromas and flavors of wild black fruit (such as blackcurrant), with overtones of black pepper spice and roasting meat. The abundance of fruit sensations is often complemented by warm alcohol and gripping tannins. Toffee notes if present come not from the fruit but from the wine having rested in oak barrels. The shiraz variety gives hearty, spicy reds. While shiraz is used to produce many average wines it can produce some of the world’s finest, deepest, and darkest reds with intense flavors and excellent longevity. You’ll discover Syrahs of value and elegance by reading my reviews of French wines.

    2010 Chateau Maris Les Planels

    $30.94

    Size 750ML


    92 POINTS The largest scaled in the lineup, and also the most modern, with noticeable sweet oak, the 2009 Château Maris Syrah Les Planels is 100% Syrah, from the estate’s top plots, that was aged for 12 months in oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Formerly known as their Old Vine Syrah, it exhibits terrific aromatics of crème de cassis, raspberry liqueur, smoked beef, spice-cabinet and hints of bacon fat that carry into a full-bodied, gorgeously proportioned and balanced Syrah. This too needs an hour of air to shine, has fantastic richness, and a juicy, lively finish and overall feel that keeps you coming back for more. It will drink well for upwards of 5-8 years, possibly even longer. (92 pts) index.png Learn More
