Add the wine and boil it down rapidly, scraping up coagulated browning juices, until reduced by half. Season the lamb and place it, fattiest side up, in the casserole dish or roaster. Surround it with the vegetables. Pour in enough stock or bouillon to come 2/3 of the way up the meat. Stir in the herbs, garlic, and tomato paste. Bring to the simmer on top of the stove. Lay aluminum foil over the top of the casserole, then the casserole cover. Place in lower third of the oven and regulate so liquid is maintained at a slow simmer.
