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.
