Shiraz (which is essentially Syrah) is a dark-skinned grape grown throughout the world and used primarily to produce powerful red wines.

Chicken Tagine - Stew is Stew Right?
In a world full of labels and where everything must be put into a category I found myself wondering if we haven't gone too far! Then I thought to myself wait, would I put Poison's 1988 Shut Up and Say AH album in the same category as Metallica's 1986 masterpiece Master of Puppets? NO I would not, sure if you Google metal they may both come up in the same search, but the reality is they're worlds apart in style and substance. It was this thought that filled my mind as I was cooking this weeks low and slow, sure I guess I was cooking a Moroccan stew but could I say it was in the same realm as a French Beef bourguignon? Hmm...No I could not. In the same way I couldn't, in good conscience put Steven Segal's 2004  Songs From The Crystal Cave into the same Blues genre as Bruce Willis' 1987 obvious classic The Return of Bruno.  As always enjoy with great vino and people you love.

Wines made from Syrah are often powerfully flavoured and full-bodied. The variety produces wines with a wide range of flavor notes, depending on the climate and soils where it is grown, as well as other viticultural practices chosen. Aroma characters can range from violets to berries (usually dark as opposed to red), chocolate, espresso and black pepper. No one aroma can be called "typical" though blackberry and pepper are often noticed. With time in the bottle these "primary" notes are moderated and then supplemented with earthy or savory "tertiary" notes such as leather and truffle.

"Secondary" flavor and aroma notes are those associated with several things, generally winemakers' practices (such as oak barrel and yeast regimes).

History

It is called Syrah in its country of origin, France, as well as in the rest of Europe,
