Advent Wine Calendar

 With the first day of December Chris and I began to open our Advent Wine Calendar. The countdown to Christmas will now be littered with wine bottles in addition to shopping bags and boxes.

What a great twist on a tradition. Instead of only moving a marker on a calendar or opening a small compartment containing a candy, this adult-themed Advent Calendar provides a sample of a wine for enjoyment during the holidays. 

Chris searched diligently to find the calendar during early November and she was fortunately able to secure one for our Advent enjoyment. 

We sampled the first offering last evening--a Cabernet Sauvignon from Lodi. The CabSav was a light body wine with a satisfactory nose but a bit thin in terms of flavor and definitely did not last. As one of my friends would say, it allowed too much light to escape when held up for examination. 

But, the glass we enjoyed set the tone for a great evening out and a great dinner. 

Welcome to the Advent Season. I wonder what the wine will be tonight.
