Sip of the Day

Day #315 of the year.
St. Francis Sonoma County Claret
November is National Novel Writing Month, otherwise known as NaNoWriMo. I’ve tried to do it multiple times in the past but failed; the goal is 50,000 words in one month and I always fizzle out by the end for one reason or another. This year, what with November being marked with all its initial madness, I admit I completely forgot. But there is still time! And a bottle of Claret, a full-bodied red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other red grapes (classically; there is no “official” blend for a Claret), is the perfect pairing. The British word for Bordeaux, it reminds me of some of the great British-penned books that inspire me to write just by reading them, or simply curling up with a really good book and a glass of Claret in hand.
