For December's pick, I'd like to get back to our roots and select a read that has two of the characteristics that I strive to maintain since our club's beginning: New York City + women writers. So let's try The Clancy's of Queens by Tara Clancy. The memoir describes the author's life as a New Yorker, with her three different perspectives: Queens, Brooklyn, and the Hamptons.
For wine, I think we should stick to red for the winter, but let's all bring and taste a red wine blend. That could mean wine created from two or more different types of grapes. It's common to see blends like Cabernet + Merlot, Grenache + Syrah, Tempranillo + Malbec, but there are a ton of options.
