Starting off right

My weekend started off well. Drinks at Moxie's, received some great advice, wine shopping at BV, and then home for steak with cognac/mushroom sauce. Still perfecting my technique, but I'm thinking it's pretty damn flavoursome. Paired with a stunning Spätburgunder; just stunning. Germany's always made pinot noir, but my experience with it has been limited, and the bottles I have tasted have been mediocre at best. This bottle was absolutely delicious. Let me say it again: this bottle was absolutely deeeeeeeeeelicious.

On to today, woke up to a breakfast of coffee and bread on olive oil/aceto balsamico and Champfleury. Life is good. Just chilling at the moment, filling out my wine notes and preparing for tonight. Another BBQ, and this time, it should be much more successful. I'm bringing two bottles, both whites. A surprise, but I have no doubt everyone will be thrilled.

Now, the only thing that will make this weekend better is if........................I got toasty drunk, but I don't think that'll happen. We'll see. I keep you posted. Maybe I start drinking now? That bottle of 2002 Rheingau riesling is starting to look awfully good...
