In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, cook cherries and wine for 10 minutes; drain and let cool. In large bowl, combine cream cheese, blue cheese, peppers, onion, hot sauce, and black pepper; mix well. Add cherries. Form mixture into a ball; chill for 1 hour. Roll ball in toasted pecans. Serve with crackers or pita chips.
This is delicious and when you cut into it, how festive it looks. You could use any of your favorite dried fruit. I also do this with dried cranberries and add orange zest to the mixture.
