Syrah / Shiraz

Syrah--or "Shiraz" if you're down under--is one of the most widely grown and versatile grapes known to man: it can be meaty, gamey, and just a bit funky if you're in the Rhone Valley of France, or spicy and full of bold fruit if you're in the lands of Napa. While it makes plenty of appearances as a premier blending grape, Syrah also functions wonderfully as a food-friendly monovarietal because of its great acidity and structure.
