Know your wine grapes
From Cabernet Sauvignon to Gewürztraminer, wine grapes around the world feature complex flavors and aromas.
The full-bodied Syrah
Behind some of the darkest full-bodied red wines in the world, the Syrah grape is a popular variety covering some 460,000 acres around the world, including Switzerland and Chile.
Due to its intense flavor, Syrah is commonly blended with other varieties to fully round out a wine's taste. Chocolate, espresso, black pepper and truffle are common tasting characteristics of the grape. Its high-tanning count also makes it an exceptional wine for storing.
