This sounds delicious but way too much for just one. LoL I wonder if I could just do it with one bottle of red wine and add in a little of the rest?

Yes, you're right. lol
I think if you're just using one bottle of your preferred wine with 1/2-1 cup of brandy, it would work and taste good. I would also cut the syrup to maybe a 1/4 a cup as it might be too sweet otherwise. No more then a half. Instead of making the syrup you can also just add sugar to the mixture and measure by taste. With the fruit I would only add about a cup total with a few orange slices and then a cinnamon stick. That is what I was planning on doing anyways. :-) I love warm sangria though on cold nights!
