We are seeing more and more examples of high-quality Syrahs and blends from across the globe. This dark-skinned grape produces wines with very deep color and structure, both of which make it perfect for blending. Here is a selection of Syrahs and Syrah-based blends from seven different winemaking regions (including Arizona!).
