Spiced Figs in Red Wine

Tips: Poach figs and make syrup up to two days ahead; cover and chill. If you want just a hint of flavor, take the rosemary sprig out of the wine mixture after 10 minutes. The longer it stays in the liquid, the stronger the rosemary flavor. Serve the remaining wine sauce over pound cake.
