I am not good with dates and so I forgot a special persons birthday. After cursing I decided to just get him a gift. Buying a gift for a guy is the hardest thing in the world and so I decided to go the easy way and buy a bottle of wine. I have this wine connoisseur at Nakumatt Thika Road wine store who knows about my blog and is always happy to help. So This is what I told him, " Hey, I need you to hook me up with one of your finest apology wines".
He asked me, "What did you do?"
I said, "I forgot a birthday".
He looked shocked like I just told him I killed someone and hid their body.
I love this place because they have a wide selection of great wine. There is the liquor compartment the size of a whole room with wines from all over the world.
After some tour in the little liquor store  he came back to me with three bottles. I wanted red wine because the recipient of the gift loves red wine. I settled on Versus. I have never drank it before. I chose the velvet honey Red wine. This retailed for around Kshs 950 if my memory serves me correctly. The gift was appreciated and he even asked me to share it.
>>>Fast forward to the part where we drank the wine.

The wine was great. It was mildly sweet with no tannic aftertaste.  It was great. Tastes great when chilled. tastes great with sprite. This is great for people who love mild tasting wines. Its alcohol percentage is 8% and it is made by Versus South African wines. I paired it with mashed potatoes and beef stew. It is definitely a delight. It was the perfect apology wine.
