      My family loves pork tenderloin and your recipe was excellent. I have had great success cooking with merlot in the past and used it with the same result here. The meat was tender and juicy. The sauce had a full-bodied flavor that enhanced the mushrooms very well. Made a nice family meal but would also be good for entertaining. Thank-you for sharing such a lovely recipe.

      Wonderful pork roast! I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out beautiful. The sauce created by the juices from the roast with the Merlot and mushrooms was so good we were dipping our bread in it! Definitely a keeper! Thanks Denise!
