Best varietal of red wine to poach pears?

letsindulge | Dec 23, 2011 06:12 PM

Making wine poached pears to serve with an arborio rice pudding. I'd like to use a wine that I already have. They include various Pinot Noir, Cab Sav, Merlot, Shiraz, Petite Syrah, Primitivo / Zin, and Mourvedre. Peeling the pears now so your timely suggestions would be greatly appreciated. TIA.
