Preparation steps

1.
For Cherry Reduction Sauce:
2.
Combine wine, cherries, garlic, and shallot in a saucepan over high heat. Cook until the mixture is reduced and almost dry, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add stock, decrease heat, and reduce until the sauce is thick, 10 to 15 minutes. Add butter, salt and pepper; keep warm until ready to serve.
3.
For Lamb:
4.
Meanwhile, place oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 400º F.
5.
Season lamb with salt and pepper.
6.
Combine breadcrumbs, garlic, parsley, and rosemary, drizzle with 2 1/2 tablespoons oil, tossing until mixture holds together.
7.
Heat remaining oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the lamb 1 rack at a time, on all sides, about 4 minutes per rack. Remove lamb from skillet and brush with mustard. Roll lamb in herb mixture and coat well. Repeat with the remaining rack. Place both racks in a roasting pan. Cover the rib bones in foil. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, for medium rare. Allow racks to rest for 5 minutes before carving. Serve immediately on a bed of cherry reduction sauce.
