In a 2-3 quart saucepan over medium-high heat, bring wine to a strong simmer. Simmer until reduced to 1 cup, about 8 minutes. (Pour wine into a measuring cup to check reduction.)

Pinot Noir or Shiraz with Chocolate
Chardonnay or a dry Sauvignon Blanc with Vanilla
RoseŽor White Zinfandel with Strawberry or Mango
