“Wine is like people. The wine takes all the influences in life all around it, it absorbs them and it gets its personality."

French Kiss (1995) – Luc (Kevin Kline)

 

This tasting is part of the extensive research that we are doing here at the Wine Watch.  Tonight we are testing older vintages of Syrah to see just how they are drinking today to let you, our “Wine Drinking People” know just when is the right time to drink your finest Syrah based wines from California.

Syrah or Shiraz is one of the few red grape varietals that can by itself be made into a world class wine capable of being cellared for decades. Although the names are not identical- the grape varietal is the same.

There are many speculations as to the origin of this varietal but DNA profiling in 1999 found Syrah to be the offspring of two obscure grapes from southeastern France, Dureza and Mondeuse Blanche. Syrah should not be confused with Petite Sirah, a synonym for Durif, a cross of Syrah with Peloursin dating from 1880.

Tonight, we will do some experimenting with this varietal and study just how well Syrah from California ages. Of course, we have wines made from other Rhone Varietals to compare like Grenache which can be found in the southern Rhone and in some instances is blended with Syrah.  And all of these wines come from the cellar of our good friend Dr. Robert Maliner so you know the prominence of the wines is as good as it gets.  For those of you that are still sheltering in place I have included all the wines from these legendary producers that we have in stock on this offering so you can purchase the wines and host your own tasting if you can’t join us in person.

We only have space for 12 tasters and the fee for this tasting which includes dinner is $275 + tax, for reservations call 954-523-9463 or e-mail andy@winewatch.com.
