A Life Well Drunk's cover photo

Started Easter dinner on the deck, but the rain forced us inside.

Still able to finish grilling a hamsteak and fresh asparagus.

Opened up a bottle of #pinotnoir from our friend @rachel_oceano from @oceanowines

The 2018 was the first vintage for this varietal, but is showing great. Bright red fruit on the nose and palate with great body and long tail.

Great pairing with dinner.

Stay home!
Stay Safe!

Great to be outside on the deck (still social distancing) even though the weather is not great. But a good opportunity to open this 2017 dry #riesling by @drfrankwine we picked up a couple of years ago. Had the honor of a great tour by Meaghan Frank.

Lots of minerality on the nose with a touch of petrol. Some grapefruit and ginger with high acid and a smooth tail.

Stay safe! 😷🍷🐰

Quinine wine was also recommended for treating influenza!

Enjoying a 2018 @oceanowines #chardonnay from San Luis Obispo. This wine was given to us by our good friend @rachel_oceano who owns the winery and is made by another good friend @winemakerbue

This chardonnay has notes of melon and white flowers on the nose. On the palate come lemon and lime with great acid and a tail that goes on.

Glad I have access to more!
