Syrah Wines are full-bodied robust tasting red wines usually carrying tastes of blackberry, blueberry, black pepper, black currant, cachou, chocolate, cinnamon, coconut, earth, expresso, licorice, mocha, mint, musk, plum, raspberry, rosemary, sage, smoke, spices, thyme, vanilla, and violets. These wines are made all over the world, most notably from France, Australia, South Africa, United States, Spain, Switzerland, and Chile.  These grapes thrive in hot climates though not a necessity for growing them.
