  2. In a small saucepan, bring wine to a boil; cook until reduced by half. Add cream. Bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat. Add sour cream and cheese; stir until cheese is melted.

"I was very leery of the Stilton cheese after removing it from the package and getting the distinct smell of "feet". But this sauce is smooth and wonderful, we ate it with steaks. It would also complement steamed broccoli or cauliflower wonderfully!"
