Sweet Cyndee's Poached Pears

I used a firm Bosc Pears for this dessert. The Bosc Pears will absorb all of the flavor from the wine as they are slowly poached. This is a wonderful summer dessert. The final touch is a velvet wine reduction sauce that is served over these warm Bosc Pears. This sauce gives the dessert a rich and wonderful flavor. The pears can be made a day ahead.
