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).
