cooking with dessert wine

I have some Yalumba Museum Reserve dessert wine that I just don't love to drink on its own--it has a very raisin-y flavor. Any recipe suggestions for an unboozy-tasting dish? My family doesn't like the taste of alcohol (so I think no cakes/fruit-poaching).

How about using it in a pan sauce for pork chops or roasted pork?

I like Amanda's idea, maybe a reduction with prunes, a little vinegar to balance. Or apples, cinnamon and pecans.

I love to use madeira and masala and other sweet fortified wines to deglaze mushrooms.
