My participation in Wine Blogging Wednesday recently has been noticeable by my shear non-participation! For one reason or another the last two or three rounds have not seen a contribution from Spittoon!

Tim at WineCast is hosting round 30 with the theme of New World Syrah. Tim writes "The only rule here is the wine needs to be made from at least 51% Syrah or Shiraz and come from the New World. That leaves quite a bit of freedom to find great examples from Australia, South Africa or the Untied States. Other places to check out are Chile and Argentina where some interesting Syrah is being produced. Your wine can be 100% Syrah/Shiraz or a blend. It can be a simple $5 Washington State bottling or Penfolds Grange. Whatever expression of the classic grape of The Rhone made outside of it’s Old World home is what I’m proposing. Join me on or before February 7th."

I doubt I'll be opening a bottle of Grange but part of the fun of WBW is the hunt to find something interesting.
