Wine Advent Calendar 2020

There are Advent Calendars that reveal chocolates, toys, treats and more, but our favorite Advent Calendars are the ones that give the gift of wine. In 2018 we followed Delectable community member, Chris England as he paired new wines with festive photos and "Santa says" commentary. Last year we followed Delectable member, Sharon B as she paired her wines with cheese and sweets. This year we are pulling together notes from various Delectable users who are enjoying Wine Advent Calendars. We wish you continued Holiday Cheer (and cheers)!

Il Principe

Trevenezie Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Advent calendar, day 21. Yum!! I love the full, grapey, berry, juicy flavors of this wine. It has a smooth finish and left me definitely wanting more. Very delicious wine. — a month ago

Gran Malbec 2019

Advent calendar, day 5. This was really nice. A bit sweet at first with a mild spice finish. I would have liked another glass after this was done. — 2 months ago

Les Terroirs

Corbières Red Blend 2019

Ken Z

Drank 12\15\20

A selection from the Costco Wine Advent Calendar.

From 325 mL.

Nose of black cherry, plums, and flowers. Think Rhone, without the garrigue. Similar flavors. Firm, but well integrated tannins, with a long, dry, dusty finish. Probably my favorite selection from the box thus far. 89-90 pts, we'll go 90 due to the excellent pairing with lamb kebabs.

3\22\7\4\4 +50 =90 pts

Red Blend Grenache Syrah 2019

A unique blend of flavors, more savory than fruity and exceptionally smooth.

Pays d ' Oc Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Ken Z

Drank 12/18/20

A selection from the Costco Wine Advent Calendar.

From 325 mL.

Aromas of blackberry, smoke, and spice. Black berry and black cherry on the palate. Still French in feel, but perhaps a bit more fruit driven than most. Black fruits and tar with firm tannins on the finish.

3/21/7/3/4 +50 =88 pts.

Nice with brisket
