I think this is one of the best brownies I ever made (I make alot of brownies) Don't be scared off by the wine. Even though I am a wine drinker which is why I made these, you really did not get much of a wine flavor. The wine just balanced it all to give a good chocolate flavor. I did serve this to my husband for Valentine treat with a glass of Red Blend wine and a Chocolate covered strawberry on the side.
