Wineblogging Wednesday does PaSsover!

CorkDork has announced the theme for the latest wineblogging wednesday, and it is Kosher wine! While many of the fine PS from Israel are not kosher, others are. I'll be having a bottle of Carmel's Regional series PS (and maybe another kosher wine, and possibly another PS) for the online shindig.

Here's Rogov's latest note on this wine:
Carmel, Regional, Petite Sirah, Judean Hills, 2005: Developed in French oak for 12 months, made from grapes from 35-year-old vines, this almost impenetrably dark purple, still-firmly tannic wine opens in the glass to reveal a rich array of dark plum, blueberry, peppery, herbal and spicy cedar notes. Dense enough to be thought of as chewable but opens to show harmony and grace. Drink now–2012. Score 91. K
By the way, avoid the execrable Gedeon Petite Sirah like it could give you the plague (as it just might...) It's that bad.
