The wholesome flavor of jus, prepared through a method known as reduction, is a good way to serve well-prepared meat dishes. While some people may prefer to use beef, vegetable, or chicken broth to make their jus, many of those with a nose for some alcoholic flavor would rather use red wine jus.
If you are one of such people, you likely love to have it handy. But preserving it might be challenging. The most common way is to freeze it, and to do that will require a red wine cooler as the wine in the jus needs to be preserved properly for its original flavor and taste to be retained.
To choose a wine cooler that you will enjoy using, you have to decide what you need in a wine cooler: if you want it to be powered by thermoelectric cooling or compressors, a single or dual zone design, or if you want a single or dual zone design you want a freestanding wine cooler. The single-zone design is good for those who prefer either white or red wine.
But for those who love the two, a dual-zone design is recommended as red wine is stored at a temperature different from white wine. You might also be interested in this recipe for red wine jus for venison.
