My personal favorite is (reduced) red wine however brandy and gold rum are excellent too.

I'd lean more towards using a marsala or a sweet vermouth ...

Marsala is good, but NOT the green bottle California stuff. That's terrible. For a pot roast you are trying, through slow cooking, to develop some complex flavors so all the ingredients in combination, matter. Different sweetish wines are going to work with different herbs.
