Food Pairings: Syrah pairs great with bold foods. You can pair Syrah with anything from a blue cheeseburger to barbecue, the trick is to bring out the subtle nuances in the wine, with grilled meats- pork, beef, lamb, venison (clove and anise spices will highlight the nuances in the wine)

Cheese Pairings: Syrah is a good pairing with blue cheeses like Roquefort or Gorgonzola, with salty cheeses like Pecorino, Grana Padano, or even Halloumi. Gouda, Asiago, Gruyere, and aged Cheddar also make for a good Syrah cheese pairing. Syrah can also pair with aged, stinky cheeses like Camembert and Brie.
