• 1 medium red onion, chopped
• 2 whole, peeled garlic cloves
• 1 tablespoon butter
• 1 tablespoon grape seed oil
• 28-ounce can of crushed tomatoes
• 2 cups Simi Sonoma County Pinot Noir
• 1/4 cup canned chipotle chilies, pureed with their liquids (or more to taste)
• 1/2 cup brown sugar
• 2 tablespoons molasses
• 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
• 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
• 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar or sherry vinegar
• 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
• 1 tablespoon paprika
• 2 tablespoons kosher salt (or a generous 1 tablespoon granulated salt)
1. Using a deep pot large enough to hold all the ingredients, sauté the onion and garlic cloves in the butter and oil over low heat until partially caramelized, 20 to 30 minutes.
2. Add the tomatoes and juice, wine, and remaining ingredients. Stir well to combine.
3. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat. Simmer for 30 minutes, partially covered. Stir occasionally.
4. Carefully puree the hot mixture with an immersion blender until smooth. Taste and adjust the seasonings.
5. Simmer 30 minutes longer, or until thickened to your liking.
6. Bottle the sauce or ladle into airtight containers. (Note: Will keep in the refrigerator for several weeks.)
