Pinot Noir Spiked Cranberry Sauce

Pinot noir Spiked Cranberry Sauce

PREPARE WITH:  Yamhill Valley Vineyards Pinot Noir Estate

In a sauce pan over medium heat, combine the sugar, wine and cinnamon, bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves and the wine is reduced slightly, about 4 minutes.  Add the cranberries and the zest.  Simmer until the cranberries soften and the sauce thickens, about 10 – 12 minutes.  Remove from the heat; remove and discard the cinnamon stick.  Set aside to cool.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
