Dark violet color. Smoky, rustic aromas of smoking autumn leaves, roasted carrot, wet tobacco, and smoked tomato with a supple, soft, dry-yet-fruity thin body and a short berry gastrique and white chocolate finish with soft tannins. A big and bold nose lead to a highly restrained palate in this everyday wine for the table.

Syrah

Serve in a Zinfandel Wine Glass
Syrah - also known as Shiraz, especially in Australia - is a red wine with rich, zesty plum and blackberry fruit along with a light spicy, sometimes peppery quality. The grape has light to medium tannins, meaning lighter versions are drinkable upon release. This has certainly helped this wine's popularity in the United States.

Full-bodied versions, such as Côte-Rôtie from France's Rhone Valley, are intense, deeply concentrated wines that need many years to round out; these are generally at their best seven to ten years after the vintage and can drink well for 20 years plus from the best vintages.

Recommended foods with Syrah include most red meats, game and barbecued foods.
