1 cup dry red wine

Lightly sprinkle roast with salt and pepper; place on rack in roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer so tip is in center of meat. Roast at 325 degrees until thermometer registers 170 degrees, about 2 hours.
Heat wine, orange juice, shallots, garlic, ginger root, allspice and 1/8 teaspoon pepper to boiling in medium saucepan; reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, 10 minutes.

Remove from heat; cool 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in NutraSweet® Spoonful™. Slice port and arrange on platter; serve with Cherry Sauce.
