A Petite First – Episode 52


It’s amazing to think that we’re three seasons into Northwest Wine Night, and we can still celebrate a “first” on the show.   We do just that be tasting Petite Syrah for the first time.  One of the panelists even creates a new descriptive term, and these two wines are so good, they caused a “split panel.” So grab a glass of locally made wine, and get ready to enjoy being introduced to two more bottles of the Northwest’s Best Wine.  The wine was delicious, and so were this episode’s Twitter hash tags:

#PetiteSyrah #Bitey-er #SplitPanel  —  Use these as you tweet about @NWWineNight

WINE FEATURED IN THIS EPISODE:  To make it easier for you to follow along and make a few notes, we’re going to tell you something the panelists NEVER know until they pick their favorites…the names of the wines, and which is number one, and which is number two…
