Should Syrah be called Carbernet

“I have long figured that I don’t really care what people think they are drinking, as long as they like it. Early on we used not even state the grape variety on the bottle…it would just say California Red Wine…and people often thought it was Cabernet. Those were the days when something labeled Syrah…let alone Grenache…would have instantly created doubt in some people’s mind as its quality, but if they thought it was Cabernet…yuuumm good.”
