Today is Thanksgiving for us non-Americans.

When I initially decided to do this post I was gonna do one on Turkey and Pinot Noir or Chardonnay which are  popular choices.  However my early morning customers from the US have convinced me to do it on an alternative to Chardonnay and Pinot, Petite Sirah. Now for some years we have had a good many folks recommending Shiraz with Turkey but Petite Sirah was a new one on me. Petite Sirah tends to be anything but Petite it is generally a big strong meaty wine with wonderful spice, plum, raspberry and blackberry flavours. But it certainly will stand up to a roast turkey Dinner with all the trappings! Happy Thursday or Thanksgiving to all!!!
