Triple Reduction Red Wine Sauce

Get your triple reduction on! We learned this sauce at a cooking school and love making it as a special treat. We rarely cook steaks but this sauce best accompanies grilled red meat. The chefs in the class made the point that you should never cook with wine you wouldn't drink. Since this sauce essentially concentrates all the flavors from a bottle of wine, it makes sense to choose a low-cost but tasty red wine. Malbec, anyone?
