A boring tuesday night that turned into something special...story unfolds like this - the same tuesday - stop with a bottle with friends and conversations turn from boring to BAM within 30 minutes.  I secretly wished for a slow roasted pig and coleslaw before my first glass was over.  It brought me back to a funny summer day where we woke up, pulled a 120 lb albino looking pig out of the fridge with no racks in it, and humped this irridescent animal into a hot charcoal grill....the skin sizzling as the heat started to turn the lard into liquid....

Hours later this suddenly bronzed swine was glistening in the sunlight, surrounded by 60 starving carnivores.  Ah the first bite was mine, skin as crispy as a corn chip...

Smoky, sweet, savory and delicious.  Just like this wine.  Smoky sweet savory and delicious.  A great tribute to New Orleans - Fess Parker roasts a perfect pig with this one
