Moderation In All Things, Even Moderation
Little kids would spend all Christmas eating chocolate and jam if you let them. Adults can just drink this two pack of Cabs.
And so I got home and the babysitter was just frazzled! I felt so bad for her! No, no, it wasn’t anything bad, it was just Damien being Damien, you know? Apparently he quietly made it past the squeaky door into the kitchen and just helped himself to big handfuls of chocolate and jam. The sitter was so mortified but I told her it was just one of those things. Kids are gonna be kids, right? Anyway, Damien’s resting now. Sleeping off the over-indulgence, I suppose. He’ll be fine tomorrow.
Mmm. Oh, sorry, I had to take a drink. Yeah, I bought this Corison Kronos Vineyard and Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2-Pack the other day. It’s really amazing. I’m having the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon right now, it’s got a nose of boysenberries, black plums, chocolate and nutmeg with this huge taste of berry jam in the mouth, then some velvety cassis and cardamom after. Mmm, I think I might just drink the whole thing right now. It’s pretty wonderful.
No, no, there’s a second downstairs, it’s the 2006 Kronos Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. I haven’t had that one yet but if it’s as good as what I’m drinking… no, it’s close but it’s a little different. The 2006 Kronos Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of blackberries, black cherries, plum compote, cedar… right, it sounds delicious. Then there’s the taste of chocolate and nutmeg, and some peppermint notes before the velvet finish. It sounds so extravagant, doesn’t it? Could I really open a second bottle just to see what it tastes like?
Oh, hang on, Damien’s making noise. Probably his tummy hurts from too much chocolate and jam. I know, stupid kid. Why can’t he be more grown up and just enjoy it in the form of wine? Hey, I’ll call you back, I’m gonna go get another glass. It’s Christmas, right? Why not indulge?
