Ingredients

  • 1 bottle (750 milliliters) fruity red wine

Directions

In a large saucepan, combine first six ingredients. Place remaining spices on a double thickness of cheesecloth. Gather corners of cloth to enclose spices; tie securely with string. Add to wine mixture.
Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; simmer gently, covered, 20 minutes. Transfer to a covered container cool slightly. Refrigerate, covered, overnight.

Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with Rioja wine. Merlot would also work well.
