Excellent. Good way to use some nasty red wine I've had sitting in the cupboard for a while. I doubled the amount of wine to no ill effects

Excellent! I doubled the recipe -- soups almost always taste better as leftovers. Also, I threw in extra celery, some carrots that were getting a bit 'questionable' in the bottom of the refrigerator, and a can of chickpeas. Entire veggie dinner in a pot and *perfect* for lunches at work.
