2-3 Large Beefsteak Tomatoes (add some cherry tomatoes if you like)
1/2 cup Katz Late Harvest Zinfandel AgroDolce Vinegar
1/4 cup Katz Rock Hill Ranch EVO
10-12 fresh basil leaves
sea salt or fleur de sel, to taste
ground pepper, to taste

1. Slice tomatoes thickly and set on platter (if serving individually, set a couple of slices on a plate). Sprinkle salt and grind pepper over all and scatter torn or shredded basil leaves.

2. Pour the vinegar into a small saucepan and reduce over medium-low heat. You are looking for it to begin to bubble around the edges and have a "syrupy"consistency (coats the back of a spoon). You should have about 1/4 cup left. Take a spoon and drizzle glaze over tomatoes evenly.

3. Finish with olive oil and either let flavors marry for 10-15 minutes or serve right away at room temperature. Enjoy!
