    This Week's Wine Selection
    ==========================
    Pillar Box Padthaway Red 2006 Price: $12

    Pillar Box red is an opaque red/black color with a scarlet rim.
    It displays aromas of sweet, ripe red berries, underpinned cinnamon
    spice and dark chocolate. The palate is rich and fleshy with vibrant
    raspberry and blackcurrant fruit intertwined with a citrus-like
    cedary oak complexity. The tannins are full yet soft and supple,
    combined with the gentle acidity to produce a lingering, harmonious
    finish.

    Serve With:

    Jerk Pork
    =========
    1/4 cup allspice berries
    1 1/2 inch piece of cinnamon
    1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
    6 scallions, including green tops, sliced
    1 habanero pepper
    Salt
    Freshly ground black pepper
    1 tablespoon dark Jamaica rum
    1 (4 pound) boned pork loin

    Preheat the oven to 350F. Place the berries on a pie tin and roast
    for 10 minutes. Pulverize them in a spice mill with the cinnamon and
    nutmeg. Place the spice mixture in a food processor, fitted with a
    metal blade. Add the scallions and chile. Season with salt and
    pepper. Process until a paste is formed. Add the rum and mix well.
    Rub the mixture all over the pork loin. Cover and allow to marinate
    for at least 1 hour at room temperature.

    Increase the oven temperature to 400F. Remove the meat and place in
    a roasting pan, and roast for 30 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350F and
    continue to roast for 1 1/2 hours, basting every 30 minutes. Remove
    from the oven and rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
