Cheap Good Syrah/Shiraz

d’Arenberg Stump Jump Shiraz 2008 Bottle

Named after the Stump Jump plow, with its uncanny ability to ride over stumps and eucalyptus roots, this Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009 will jump over your expectations. The juicy, berry flavors and fine finish make this easily the best Shiraz under $10. Buy more than one bottle.

Stonecap Syrah 2005 Bottle

At $6.99 we are approaching bum wine territory, but this Syrah from the award winning Goose Ridge Vineyard in Washington is no 7-Eleven special. Pairs well with a heavy pasta and cheese meal, though I recommend a couple of hours in a decanter because this wine has a strong nose straight out of the bottle.

Vintage: 2005
Type: Red
Variety: Syrah
Region: Columbia Valley, Washington

Wolf Blass Yellow Label Shiraz 2006 Bottle

Australian’s love their screw top wine, and who can really blame them? Sure it makes you look way less badass and not at all James Bond like, but you could open the bottle with your toes if necessary. Wolf Blass generally makes fantastic wines for the money and this is no exception, being probably the best screw top Shiraz around. Full bodied and pairs well with a big chunk of American red meat.

Smoking Loon Syrah 2005

Smoking Loon Syrah 2005 Bottle

Don’t be fooled by the cheap price, as a gold medal winner in the 2007 California State Fair Wine Competition, the 2005 Smoking Loon Syrah definitely deserves a try. This mouth-filling, well rounded wine goes great with any type of barbeque, especially spicy dishes like Teriyaki Chicken.

Vina Robles Estate Syrah 2002

Vina Robles Estate Syrah 2002 Bottle

The 2002 Vina Robles Estate Syrah has an earthy nose supported by intense black fruits, with a dash of white pepper and vanilla. Spicy flavors of boysenberry, currants, and candied fruits are sure not to disapoint. Pairs perfectly with grilled meats, portabella mushrooms, and strong cheeses.

Alexander Valley Vineyards Syrah 2003

Alexander Valley Vineyards Syrah 2003 Bottle

The full-bodied 2003 Alexander Valley Vineyards Syrah opens with beautiful aromas of ripe black cherry, boysenberry and black pepper. The same dark fruit flavors fill the palate and follow through to a long finish. An excellent accompaniment to red meats such as roasted lamb and steak.
