Q:

What does Shiraz wine taste like?

A:

The taste of Shiraz wines varies depending on grapes used for production; common flavors include blackberry, boysenberry, pepper and clove. Shiraz wines, also called Syrah, derive from grapes grown in California and Washington State, and in locations throughout Australia.

Several factors, including region of production and age of the wine, contribute to the different flavors of Shiraz wines. In Australia, for instance, wines made with grapes in the northern areas have richer colors and spicier flavors than wines made from grapes grown in the southern regions. Shiraz wines fall into the broader category of red wines and, like other reds, pair well with meats and savory dishes.
