Famous Red Wines

Syrah, cabernet, zinfandel are red grape varieties. This page describes wine styles by variety and production area.

If only one variety (merlot, cabernet sauvignon) is mentioned on the label, then the wine is called varietal and is named after the grape with a capital initial (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon). Varietal wines primarily show the fruit: how the wines tastes much depends on the grape variety.
