Rounding up the Petite Sirah for WBW #40

The Wannabe Wino, better known as Sonadora, has already finished the round-up of tasting notes from this past Wednesday's Wine Blogging Wednesday #40.

This is all the more impressive given the numbers: 52 bloggers and wine lovers wrote up their tasting notes, including 13 first-time participants in WBW. Together they drank wines from Israel, Mexico, France, Australia, Chile, and the US.

Petite Sirah is not to everyone's taste, since it is big, brash, and brawny so kudos to all the folks who cross-trained their palates and got outside their wine comfort zone. I loved my Twisted Oak wine, but not everyone was quite as lucky as I was, as you will see from the reviews.

Thanks again to Sonadora, to Lenn Thompson of Lenndevours, and to all those who participated and helped to make this such a successful pre-holiday event. Our hosts for January will be Jack and Joanne of Fork & Bottle, and I'll have the full details of the theme once they post it.
