Place all rosemary pork ingredients in a gallon-
size resealable bag. Seal bag and turn several
times to mix ingredients; refrigerate several hours
or overnight. Remove pork from bag and discard
marinade. Grill pork over medium heat, turning

cherries, Merlot, honey and vinegar in a medium
saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and
simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Stir in
cornstarch mixture and cook for a few minutes
more to thicken. Season to taste with salt and
pepper and serve over sliced cooked pork.
