Syrah / Shiraz
If you have a glass of Shiraz in your hands, you know that you have before you a potent variety with black fruit, full body, and low astringency. Its deep red color recalls the legend of its Persian origins; its ripe blackberry and plum aromas give way to cedar, chocolate, and a light touch of toast. A round yet muscular wine with soft tannins, balanced fruit, and toasted oak.
