Friday Drinks - It's my Birthday and I'll Drink GOOD wine if I want to ~ the little lioness

Friday Drinks – It’s my Birthday and I’ll Drink GOOD wine if I want to

Birthday sponge cake with Makka Pakka, Hello Kitty, Orange Frog

It was my birthday on Wednesday, the ripe old age of 33. Celebrated with a trip to the Pokolbin Vineyards and Tacos with the family. The Winery visits will be shared with you soon, but here’s my awesome birthday cake, with Makka Pakka, Hello Kitty and Random Orange Frog figurines /slash/ cake toppers added by the delightful little people in my life.

So, this Friday we have two lovely wines from the Angel Funded Naked Wines, which never fails to delight!

Andevine Cab Sav

The Andevine Hilltops Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 was a “bonus” for me this month in my case. Not the usual style we drink, but as soon as it was poured, it was a winner. I can’t always smell the spice or chocolate, but this had chocolate notes for sure! And went down just as well as chocolate ;)

Brian Fletcher Shiraz

Our other newbie this week was the Brian Fletcher Estate Western Australian Shiraz 2013, which was a suggestion based on my usual purchases from Naked, and I’m glad I slipped two into this order because it was well received with the Hunter Belle blue we were finishing off :)

Tried any new wine lately?
