A dark -skinned varietal grown to create commanding red wines.  Wines labeled Syrah, or the other common name of Shiraz, enjoy an abundance of popularity all over the world.


This noble red grape produces bold, complex and long-lived wines.  Smooth yet rich with concentrated dark fruit flavors and hints of black pepper and smoke, its easy to see why Syrah enjoys such popularity.
