OK, have a recipe for "Sangria" Cranberry sauce that I'm looking to make for Thanksgiving. Recipe just calls for 1 cup red wine, no mention of sweet, dry, anything. Suspect the Sangria part of title just refers to the fruit in it(though i will paste recipe at end for what help there is). Looking for any suggestions on what type of wine might work well. Actually thinking of using one of my cranberry based home made wines, or some beaujolais nouveaux just in honor of time of year. But happy to get any input on this. Not making it until Wednesday night, so still have some time for shopping if need be (already have the cranberry wines and a bottle of beaujolais nouveaux on the rack).
