Keep Up the Good Work, Gentlemen and Ladies

Props go out to a couple of my favorite wine bloggers – Lyle Fass at Rockss and Fruit and Neil at Brooklynguy Loves Wine – for getting name-dropped by New York Times columnist Eric Asimov in the context of his interview on Tom Wark's Fermentation. For that matter, props also go to Mr. Wark for helping to build the community with the strength of his blog via his recent Bloggerviews.

Heck, as long as we’re spreading the good word, I’d recommend heading on over to Neil’s site to check out his summary of the submissions for Wine Blogging Wednesday 39: Silver Burgundy. The theme for WBW 40, to be hosted by Sonadora at Wannabewino on Wednesday, December 12, has also been announced. It’s about the last thing I’d normally reach for, Petite Sirah, so I’m looking forward to the challenge.

Nice work, all.

Thanks for the shout out. Petite Sirah huh? Once upon a time I used to like this grape.

David McDuff said...

Indeed, Zach. Thanks for checking in.

Frankly, Lyle, my experience has been somewhat limited with Petite Sirah. My primary aversion comes from its tendency toward high alcohol and its seemingly magnetic attraction to thick coats of toasty oak. The occasional nudge toward areas I otherwise might turn my back on is one of the reasons I enjoy participating in WBW.

same here. this is a perfect example. i would never otherwise buy a petite sirah. maybe i can convince my friend mike to open a bottle of turley with me....

Just another justification for a little shopping trip for me. It'll be interesting to see what's lurking out there in the PA system.
