So a Turkey met a Pig in a Bar…

Thank you for all of your comments on our recent Thanksgiving note.  We hope you enjoyed Stuart Brioza’s recipe -  (perfect for a cool fall evening and a bottle of Meteor).  This year’s menu coupled Meteor classics with a new twist.

While preparing the dish I simply called “So a Turkey Met a Pig at a Bar” (which early evening looked something like this)…

What? This isn’t unusual, it happens all the time. A turkey and a pig walk into a bar, and the pig tells the turkey…  Though, this being a kitchen in the midst of preparing Thanksgiving, by the end of the evening they looked like this.

My mind immediately started running through the list of perfect wines we could pull from the cellar…

While aged Bordeaux, Brunello, Burgundy and Napa classics made sense (and were ultimately consumed), the PERFECT bottle jumped to mind – a wine that has aged gracefully in the cellar since 2004…

You thought 05 was our first vintage? It was our first OFFICIAL vintage, but we made 2 barrels of wine in 04 that has never left our personal cellar. Re-tasting the wine was a revelation in the aging ability of the vineyard; pure cabernet characters of blackcurrant, chocolate and darjeeling tea with supple tannins, incredible length and the distinct minerality that could only come from here…

With two barrels, we don’t have a lot of wine in the cellar, but the time has come to share this beauty.
