Your mission, should you choose to accept it, sends you off in search of what is arguably my favorite red wine varietal: Petite Sirah. So often confused with Syrah or Shiraz, it deserves it’s own time to shine, and this is it.
Petite Sirah is lesser known by the name Durif. I have noticed, and actually picked one up, Durifs coming out of Australia recently, so they are out there, it just takes some hunting. I haven’t found any from France yet, but maybe one of you will have better luck than me.
The assignment is simply that. Report back on any Petite Sirah that strikes your fancy.
Post your review on Wednesday, December 12 and send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your review. If you don’t have a blog, please send me your tasting notes and I will be happy to publish them here and include you in the round up.
I am thrilled that my theme suggestion was taken by our fearless leaders over at Wine Blogging Wednesday and am incredibly happy to be hosting this month. Many thanks to the creator of WBW, Lenn of Lenndevours and to last month’s host, Brooklynguy for his excellent theme and write-up! Can’t wait to read about all the delicious Petite Sirah everyone discovers!
