1978 Santa Cruz Mountain Duriff

1/9/13-Carl and Kathy hosted the Wednesday Knitters and provided a dinner of Sheppard Pie and Knitters salad.  The brown bag wine of the night was a very healthy and fruity 1978 Durif.  The grape is known as Petite Sirah in North and South America.  In the rest of the World it is generally known as Durif, named after its discoverer, Dr. Francois Durif.  The high tannins and acidity present in Petite Sirah make it an excellent candidate for ageing.
