"My brother-in-law left a bottle of Merlot with us after Christmas. My husband and I do not care for Merlot (too dry) so I tried using it in this recipe, hoping the fruit juices and sugar would offset the dryness of the Merlot. It turned out FABULOUS! We loved it. My husband had talked about giving away the bottle of wine, but now he says, "We're NOT giving that away.""
