Sweet Red Cherry Wine Sauce

Posted by Wine Gourmet on

Why should our sweet red wines just be enjoyed in our glass? We think of them as dessert anyways, so incorporating them into our desserts is like a match made in heaven. Drizzle this sauce over ice cream, cake, or basically anything that’ll soak up that delicious sauce in all the right ways. This recipe for a Summer Cherry Wine Sauce from A-Squared is just what we need this spring and summer!
