I'm always looking for recipes that look like they take hours to prepare but in fact take as little as 30 minutes. This pork tenderloin stuffed with figs and pistachios is one of them. And what's even better, this recipe comes from a California winery I recently reviewed.
Aged in oak for 18 months, the 2015 Stone Oven Red (purchased $25.00, 14.7% alc.) is a blend of 78% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 2% Mouvedre. Pouring the wine into the glass, the color was a luscious dark red. The aromas initially detected were dark berry (blackberries), with a slight hint of spice. Tasting the wine, the flavors were dark cherry, plum and vanilla, and it filled the mouth. The finish was long, dry and satisfying. This was a well-balanced, food friendly, easy to drink wine.
