Grape Study: Syrah

Thursday, February 13 from 5:00-8:00 PM

Please join us we travel from California to Australia and France in search of the best Syrah. Suffice it to say there's a wide variety of expressions, from deep pepper and earthy to gamey, meaty bacon-y styles.

Syrah is not a delicate variety - little wonder it was historically used to bolster Bordeaux in a poor vintage. The romantic legend that Syrah originiated in the Persian city of Shiraz and then migrated throughout the Mediterranean

has been de-bunked by its DNA. Syrah/Shiraz is a native of the Rhone valley, the noble child of two obscure varieties, Dureza and Mondeause Blanche
