Wbwlogo_23Can you believe that February 7 is the 30th installment of Wine Blogging Wednesday already? It seems like only yesterday that I stole borrowed the idea for Is My Blog Burning and turned it into a wine event.

Anyway, here we are at #30 with Tim of Winecast serving as host. I’d like to thank him for filling in for the scheduled host, who is AWOL.

I know what Tim’s original them was (not going to ruin the surprise for a later WBW vintage) but it wasn’t particularly seasonal. So, he turned to a wine that we both think will work well with the cool-to-cold weather blanketing much of the U.S. this time of year–syrah/shiraz.

But not just any syrah. Tim wants us to pick up a bottle of New World Syrah (Shiraz).

Because of Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday next month, Tim has decided that WBW will take place on Wednesday, February 7. So, head over to Winecast to learn more and join us!

I’m excited because this may mark the return of my tasting partner, the lovely, talented and soon-to-be mommy, Nena.
