Pork Shoulder Roast with Figs, Garlic, and Wine
Iain Bagwell

Pork Shoulder Roast with Figs, Garlic, and Wine

Stuffing this roast with figs and garlic slivers will make you feel like a modern-day Julia Child, and the results are stunning: mosaic-like slices infused with rich fruit and wine flavors.

Recipe: Pork Shoulder Roast with Figs, Garlic, and Wine

Pair with: A big red combining sweet fruit, smoke, and spice, such as a Syrah. The jammy fruit flavors in our bottle pick also have an earthy character that made us think of figs—which, in turn, are perfect with the sweet, deep flavor of long-roasted pork shoulder. A succulent package all together. Recommended bottle: Murray 2009 Syrah (Red Mountain).
