I’ve heard of this wine for awhile but never saw it in person. I immediately took a picture of it when I saw it. It definitely has an easy-to-remember name. Apparently the 2009 used un-oaked Grenache wine from various sub-regions of Aragon and Navarra instead of Australia wine like previous year’s Bitch Grenache.
It has dark cherry and raspberry aromas underpinning with spicy, peppery notes with hint of anise. Apparently according to the wine maker Chris Ringland, the wine develops further personality 3 to 5 years in the cellar, making 2013 and 2014 the perfect year for consumption, so bring one to your girlfriend’s party!
With the affordable price tag of $10, what can go wrong?
Macarons are one of my favorite desserts, but after making them myself, I decided it’s better to share when I have a big batch on my hand (it’s sugar heavy). This was an overnight delivery from my friend in LA who purchased it from Lette in Beverly Hills. Instead of plating the macarons as is, you can make it fancier by plating them on a two-tier plate.
like so. Make sure your hands are clean and dry and have a steady hand to hold the macarons in place while you add more. The circle is tricky to accomplish and it takes a little bit of skill, but in no time, voila! Doesn’t it just look absolutely gorgeous now?
Place the tower next to indirect sunlight to enhance its presentation. This was for an afternoon tea event that I never had the chance to post. Here it is :) Maybe this can be your centerpiece when you decide to host a party of your own.
Best way to wake up to a nice day sipping from a cup with beautifully crafted foam art.
Lucia cake and pistachio macaron up close. Lucia is named after the P46 matriarchal Grandmother. With a traditional chocolate mousse, vanilla crème brulee, chocolate cake, and praline crisp, it is the perfect balance of bitter sweetness paired with a cup of hot cocoa.
