Syrah is responsible for some of the darkest full-bodied red wines in the world. It has dark fruit flavors from blackberry to savory black olive and a smoky taste you will love. When you taste Syrah you’ll be greeted with a punch of flavor that tapers off and then has a spicy peppery note in the aftertaste.

With its massive full-bodied taste, Syrah pairs great with bold foods. You can pair Syrah with anything from a blue cheese burger to barbecue, the trick is to bring out the subtle nuances in the wine.
Try Using Herbes de Provence Spice your foods with a special blend of herbs originating from the South of France. The floral aromatics of Herbes de Provence with lavendar, fennel and thyme will compliment well with an Old World Syrah.
Soft Cheeses Are Better Work with softer stinkier cheeses, the fat texture and earthy flavors in a cheese such as Abbaye de Belloc will absorb the high tannin in Syrah.
Shiraz and Barbecue Tip The peppery spice in Shiraz works wonders with a peppery barbecue. Try spicing your meats with anise and clove to bring out those subtle nuances in the wine.
