1.The colour of the wine depend on the grape type you use.Use dark black to get rich colours.I used the ordinary one so my colour was like this.

2.Adding cloves& cinnamon gives nice spicy aroma and flavour,you may skip if u don't like it.

3.For more darker colour you can add 1\4 cup caramel while making.It gives deeper colour.

4.Use only clean dried wooden spatula for mixing.
