Episode 18 – P.S. I Love You
|The Wine:||100% Petite Syrah|
|Wine of Origin:||Stellenbosch|
Given that there is more Petite Syrah found in the States than the rest of the world put together, it seems appropriate that the label was painted by an American artist. Julian Alden Weir was an impressionist artist and a founding member of ‘The Ten’, a loosely allied group of disillusioned artists who banded together in 1898 to exhibit their work.
This painting, better known in artistic circles as ‘The Letter’, dates to 1910.
