Opaque black garnet color. Aromas of freshly tilled earth, dried fig, and black pepper with a slightly chewy, vibrant, fruity medium-full body and a easy berry vinaigrette and cherry candy finish with medium tannins and moderate oak flavor. An easy-going Shiraz for weeknight meals.

Shiraz is made in several countries, but the best-known versions are from Australia. Known as Syrah in other countries, Shiraz is a rich red wine known for its blackberry and plum flavors and moderate tannins. Some examples also have a good amount of pepper, tobacco, licorice and black spice apparent on the palate as well.

There are hundreds of versions from Australia, ranging from less than $10 a bottle to more than $40 a bottle. The lighter versions are easy-drinking and should be consumed within one or two years, while the more expensive versions are best consumed from seven to ten years of age. Shiraz in grown in several regions of Australia, the most famous being Barossa and Victoria.

Given the popularity of Australian Shiraz, some producers in California have labeled their offerings of Syrah as Shiraz.

Pair these wines with grilled and barbecued foods, game birds and roasts.
