Some Noval 25th June2012

Post by Cookie » 01:22 Tue 26 Jun 2012

Great evening with great company....as usual :D

Many thanks to Jacob for organising and a super introduction to some wines I have never tasted before.

The N'50 was a clear winner as WOTN but all three of the 50's wines, in my view, were superb.

Highlight of the night, however, goes to Tom for placing his Oyster card on one gate and trying to enter through another....priceless :lol: :lol:

Does this count as the 5th Anniversary Tasting, or did we all fail on that landmark completely?

We should feel proud that we missed the landmark completely :wink:

This was a very interesting tasting and one which deserves a more formal set of links on the review thread. While I can (and will be willing to) do so when I have a few moments later today, could someone post the link to the placemats please?
