One of the grapes which is now considered a noble grape is the Syrah from the northern Rhone. This grape can and does make wines which can age forever, becoming more and more majestic as time passes on. This vine is quite productive and hardy, which has allowed it to travel to many places in the world where it thrives. I will bring five examples of Syrah from all over the world, including the obligatory northern Rhone and Australian bottlings. The USA will also be represented. Come enjoy the many manifestations of this regal grape. Register online 48 hours in advance at www.annarborcooks.com
