Take out of refrigerator approximately 30 minutes before grilling. Grill to desired doneness.
Meanwhile heat small saucepan to medium heat. Immediately add the Espresso Dark Balsamic and red wine. Increase heat to high. Boil until reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and mix in blue cheese crumbles.
Toss sliced shallots with enough olive oil to coat. Roast in 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.
