Diamine Syrah (80ml Bottled Ink) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 158.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificently blended color! Diamine Syrah, so well named! I tried this alongside Diamine's Oxblood, another fine "red," and the Syrah proved perfect for my taste: it's a deep red with purply-black elements, resulting in a color absolutely akin to a dark red wine (vs. the Oxblood which is more blackened red & true to the Oxblood name). I adore this in my Platinum F nibbled pens - even with the fineness of the nib there are shading elements that are apparent. I feel quite 19th century writing with an ink this color! As with other Diamine inks I've tried the Syrah is exceptionally well-behaved: a fine, rich flow that dries quickly and writes as well on lesser papers as on my beloved Tomoe River paper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice color, subtle shading I like this red wine color quite a bit. It's a deep red with a few hints of almost a pink shade. But one complaint is that, despite its lack of waterproofness, the ink discolored the inside of my Noodler's Ahab converter. Nothing a bit of soaking in water didn't fix, but I could've done without it. This ink also isn't great with feathering. All in all, though I like the color, I don't know if it's an ink I'd buy again. It's the kind of thing I picked up for kicks and giggles but I find that, in a school setting -- which is what I use most of my fountain gear for -- it's not always a good choice. In other words, I like it, but it just isn't practical for the purpose I want to use it for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Red, red wine... First off, this ink is typical Diamine with excellent flow, lubrication, and saturation. In addition, this color shades like crazy, even through my Lamy Al-Star's fine nib. Diamine really got the name of this ink right as it looks just like red wine on the paper, particularly when wet. I ordered a sample of this ink at the same time as a sample of Noodler's Black Swan in Australian Roses, and have to say this ink beats the Noodler's hands-down. They are similar in color and shading abilities, but this ink is much better behaved. The Syrah has plenty of character and is a bit off the beaten path from your run of the mill reds. It's understated enough to use daily, and I'd have no problems using it in a business setting. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow This ink is just plain cool. I've been mainly using it in a Lamy Al Star 1.5mm steel nib on HP Premium Laser Paper. The WHITE paper takes away from the character in this ink, but it really pops on off-white or yellow papers, like in Brian's video. It goes on very red, but in the few seconds it takes to dry, it turns deep red with purple undertones. Cool shading. My only wish is that it were a couple shades darker, but that's me, not the ink. You have to be cap conscious with this ink, as I found it dried on my nib pretty fast. Very rich and saturated - this ink is a winner for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Diamine Syrah Well I still feel very much like a novice, and in fact have only been indulging this passion for a year or so, but the Diamine Syrah is the first ink that compels me to write something -- even if I don't have anything to say! In short, it's a delightful flavor. I can't tell you what it, exactly, that moves me, but there is something about the space on the spectrum that it occupies, I suppose, that does for me what I want when writing for myself (e.g., notes, first reflections and musings for longer projects that I will word process, etc.). It seems warm and comforting but also somewhat serious. Other favorites are J. Herbin Poussiere de Lune, Rouge Opera and Violette Pensee. Not sure how many stars it merits, but I suppose my favorite deserves the maximum available?
