Recipe by LonghornMama

I found this in Sunset years ago and have made it often for parties. I mix it right it the serving pitcher so it's quick and easy. Use Torani vanilla syrup, or similar brand, the type used to flavor coffee, and a big 1.5 liter jug of the cheapest red wine you can find.

I used a Pinot Noir and this was exceptionally good! Doesn't have to sit before serving and it's very smooth tasting.
