Happy Anniversary to my awesome, beautiful, great cook, put up with my quirks wife!
Although today is technically our anniversary, my wife and I celebrated with a great dinner and wine and that other stuff this past weekend. To celebrate the actual day of our nuptials, I packed for tomorrow’s flight to Australia and popped a bottle of Schramsberg 2003 Brut Rose as a finish to our sushi.
I actually bought this sparkler back in February for Super Bowl Sunday to celebrate the Steelers impending victory over the Cardinals. Unfortunately, I had the flu Super Bowl weekend and was barely able to watch any of the Steelers victory.
Today this wine serves a dual role for my wedding anniversary as well as the Steelers Super Bowl victory!
Schramsberg 2003 Brut Rose
Picked this up at Let’s Talk Wine in Chesapeake for $46. This is a blend of 58% Pinot Noir and 42% Chardonnay. 12.4% alcohol. About 4,500 cases produced. I would classify this as ‘very dry.’ Pink/salmon color. Refreshing nose of strawberry, toast, cranberry and lime effervescence. Very lively finish of raspberry 7UP (if there were such a thing).
Great celebration sparkler!
