Wine and Pizza Birthday Celebration

-
-

Happy Birthday Ms Poh and K.T.! Best wishes for our two wine drinking birthday gals in September. We celebrated their birthdays at K.T.’s spiffy condo with Pizza Hut new Cheesy Pizza, buffalo wings and KFC chicken. The wine that we had went pretty well with the Cheesy Pizza, however, I think it was opened too young before reaching it’s full potential.

The cake we had gotten them was the delicious Häagen-Dazs ice cream cake. It was strawberry in flavour with very crisp and crunchy chocolate pieces and shavings all around the cake. Good choice BlueDolp!

Here are the two happy birthday girls and the soft toys with the cake =>

The wine that we had was purchased from Carrefour, probably costing somewhere around S$30. The wine Chateau Le Merle was a Saint-Emillion Grand Cru and a Grand Vin de Bordeaux, vintage 2001 with a mellow ruby colour.

Smell : Intense blackcurrents and cherry, big on the alcohol.

Taste : The wine has no significant fruit, deep grape skin/stalks taste, filled with licorice nutmeg and woody.

After-taste : Oak, cigar, with mild astringent tannins. I would say a few more years in the cellar would do the wine good.
