TRUTH !!
if, in the cooking process, wine is reduced to "dry" (no liquid remains, just a syrupy glaze), the alcohol is evaporated.
the alcohol, having a lower boiling point than the liquid, evaporates before all the liquid is gone.
if the wine is still liquid, however, some alcohol remains.

Well I don't know whether to be embarrassed at not getting a repeat question right...or chagrined to not have realized. LOL.
