Sarah Goes To ....nowhere, this time the wines came to me.

Claire du Lune, a PR/Networking group based in Lyon, France, has sponsored a blind tasting competition for wine bloggers, www.secret-wine.com. Guess the appellations of the three wines and win. This sounds straight forward until three wines of similar hue are sitting on the table in front of you demanding your utmost attention. Identifying wines out of context is fun and tests you palate, but it’s not easy. The wines arrived finished with a luminous green foam cork and black labels illuminated with only a number, corkscrew, and the words Secret Wine.

        My guesses: all from Southern France and all blends heavy with Syrah, Grenache, and Mouvedre in varying proportions. We’ll see on October 10 how I fared.
