Very good and different from our usual turkey gravy. I only used one onion and 1 cup of wine (I didn't have port so used a red wine instead)but only used 1/4 cup flour w/ water. It wasn't really all that thick so I should have used the other 1/2 cup of flour as indicated in the ingredients. Thanks for sharing!
