Here are five great Mourvèdre-based wines from Paso Robles, Calif. Because they are produced in small quantities, it may be necessary to order them from the winery. 2007 Anglim Winery Mourvèdre "Hastings Ranch Vineyard" ($34): Quite a spicy wine, with notes of cinnamon, star anise and black pepper. Black plum fruit comes through on the mid-palate and drives through to the finish. 14.9% alcohol. http://www.anglimwinery.com 2007 Edward Sellers Mourvèdre ($35): Dark cherry fruit with black pepper and a gamy "low note" to keep it interesting.

We happen to have the recipe for this exquisite meat loaf, which, says chef Leonard Schwartz, was a result of years of experience, not just experiment. The loaf is served with spinach and mashed potatoes.

Our word pepper comes, by way of Greek, from the Sanskrit name of a cousin of black pepper known as long pepper ( Piper longum ). While black pepper comes in little round wrinkled peppercorns, long pepper takes the form of curved stalks about three quarters of an inch long that consist of a lot of tiny, dusty, grayish, pepperish things. Probably in the beginning the Greeks were importing long pepper, some varieties of which are hotter than black pepper.
