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.
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).
