I got these recipe ingredients from Chef Bruce at the Red Rooster Cafe in New Braunfels, TX. I serve this sauce with fresh blackberries from my dad's garden. Layer in a wine glass, sweetened whipped cream, berries, sauce, then more whipped cream. Top with a berry and sprinkle with a little powdered sugar. So good! They also use this sauce on their Monte Cristo Sandwich.

I paired this with fresh berries and a goat cheese panna cotta as a dessert option for a recent event. It was very well received. Be sure to use a wine that you would like to drink because even with all the sugar and flavorings the taste of the wine still comes through. I used a well-priced cab from Napa and reduced it to a syrup consistency. One change I will make for next time is to use a cinnamon stick instead of the ground cinnamon. Then I will fish it out before serving and not be able to see the "grains" of cinnamon in the sauce. This one is a keeper. Read More

I served this at a dinner party and it was a huge hit. I drizzled it over slices of butter cake topped with a scoop of french vailla ice cream. This recipe could not be easier and I didn't change a thing though I think any good red wine would be lovely. This will be a go to for a light but elegant dessert. Read More

I cut the recipe in half because it was just for two people but this sauce is magical! I couldn't stop myself while enjoying it! I used Apothic Dark and drizzled it over shortcakes with strawberries and blueberries. So good! Read More

I looked up this recipe to copy a dessert I had at a local restaurant. Take this syrup and pour it over dates and top with some whipped Marscapone cheese. Heaven! Read More

I m on a low carb diet so I substituted stevia for the sugar and then used xanthan gum to thicken the sauce. It s still probably not very low carb but absolutely delicious!!! Read More

I used this on top of cupcakes with Pinot noir buttercream. It was beautiful drizzled over the top. Unfortunately within a short amount of time it was gone...some had run off and some seemed to have soaked into the buttercream. That being said it still tasted amazing! Read More
