I'm tempted to force myself to go in alphabetical order, but I think just continuing to track as I go along. I must admit that our forthcoming publication of Evan Goldstein's Daring Pairings me be giving me false hope, as Evan lists grapes for almost every letter. http://www.ucpress.edu/books/pages/11029.php
I would love your suggestions, particularly for the trickier letters. I'll keep you updated letter by letter here and possibly on twitter as well. Wish me luck!
Looks like we have a group. Also joining are:@oenoblog and @marycressler!!!
B is for Bonny Doon. In this case 2006 Cigare Volant. The 2006 is a blend of Mourvèdre, Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah,Carignane I've written about Bonny Doon before and have had the pleasure to work with Randall Grahm on Been Doon So Long http://www.beendoonsolong.com/ For those who have not read it, it you should! Randall is articulate and creative and truly inspirational.
I'm excited to make this my first letter of our challenge!
And for the laugh, I was explaining the challenge in the car on the way home to my daughter. She has decided R is for Rose so I'll be looking for a rose with an r grape or producer.
