This black grape variety, similar to Cabernet Sauvignon, is small with thick, darkly colored skins. The wines are usually full-bodied and generally possess a black fruit (blackberry) and dark chocolate character. In moderate climate regions this may have hints of herbaceousness (mint, eucalyptus), smoked meat, and spice (black pepper). In hot climates there are more sweet spice notes (licorice, cloves). With age, the best wines develop animal and vegetable complexities. The Syrah wines that undergo oak treatment also display toast, smoke, vanilla, and coconut flavors. The premium regions that produce Syrah wines are the Northern and Southern Rhone, Australia and Chile.
