BirthdaycakeWBWx2 is here.

Today is Wine Blogging Wednesday, but you already know that. Fatemeh from Gastronomie is hosting the first WBW for today, forcing us to drink a wine of which 250 or fewer cases were made.

But, today is also a WBW of another kind entirely — Wife’s Birthday Wednesday. Yup, today is Nena’s 28th birthday.

So, we’ll be drinking our Wine Blogging Wednesday wine tonight with the dinner I’m cooking for my beloved birthday girl.

The menu: It’s a surprise (for now)
The wine: Waters Crest Winery 2001 Meritage

Jim Waters only made 50 cases of this wine (his first commercial release) and in that first year, he only made 186 cases total. I think that qualifies for this month’s theme, no?

More tonight. Happy birthday baby!
