This sounds deeeeelish! I have a little secret for grilling asparagus, if I might share. I wash them, let them break naturally (i.e. don't cut them, as per Jacques Pepin's instructions) and then dry them. I put them in a large Ziplock...salt, pepper, toss in a couple cloves of chopped garlic and then pour a good amount (2 tbls) of extra virgin olive oil on them. You can even toss some lemon zest for an extra kick. Then, I let it marinate in the Ziplock for like an hour, turning and rubbing the spices together every now and then. Then, I cook them on a hot grill pan for about 8 minutes per side until they get nice and cooked...cripsy on the tops even. They're just delicious...like candy! Well, okay...not candy, but delicious all the same. And they go GREAT with the Wolf Blass!
