Red Wine Meatloaf Glaze

1 1/4 cups dry red wine
1/4 cup sugar
1 tomato, finely chopped
1 teaspoon unsulfured molasses
Pinch of ground allspice

In a medium saucepan, combine the red wine with the sugar, chopped tomato, molasses and allspice and bring to a boil over moderate heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Boil until the glaze is thick and syrupy, about 15 minutes.

When meatloaf is about 20 minutes away from finishing, brush half of the glaze over the meat loaf. Continue baking for about 20 minutes longer. Brush once more with the remaining glaze during baking. Let the meat loaf rest for 15 minutes, then thickly slice and serve.
