|Blue Fin's friendly label.|
This weeks bottle of budget friendly wine, Blue Fin California Petite Sirah, was purchased at the Trader Joe’s a month ago. No, I wasn’t attempting to age this golden glass encased wine, it just so happens that I had picked up this wine on a regular Joe’s stop before the dreaded illness sunk in, and it remained in the wine rack, lonely, and hoping to be poured into a stemmed glass for a month.
Once the Amoxicllin kicked in I was ready to taste, so I grabbed the bottle of Blue Fin Petite Sirah, purchased at the nice price of $3.99, popped the cork and gave it a pour. If you are unfamiliar with the Petite Sirah variety of wine, you should know right off the bat that it’s not necessarily user friendly, and by that I mean it has specific flavors that are a little harsher and not common to most reds.

Personally, I liked the Blue Fin Petite Sirah because I am the type of person who enjoys shaking things up a bit (especially when it comes at a easy to afford price tag), and I can appreciate the tartness and darker flavors of the wine. If you are more of a cautious wine drinker, get more wine joy out knowing what to expect when you pour that glass, steer clear of the Blue Fin Petite Sirah and head toward something a bit more friendly like The California Rabbit Pinot Noir.
