Preheat oven to 350° and butter/flour bundt pan.
Make the cake: combine butter, cocoa powder, salt and wine in a small saucepan and place over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until butter is melted and all ingredients are combined, then remove from heat.
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar and baking soda. Whisk well, then add half of the melted butter mixture. Yes, it will be very thick. Add the rest of the liquid mixture and whisk until combined. Add the first egg, whisk until completely blended, then add the last egg. Stir well, then whisk in the sour cream and vanilla. Make sure the mixture is deliciously smooth, then pour it into the prepared bundt pan.
Bake the cake for about 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean with no wet batter clinging to it. **Make a note of the color of your pan. If you are using a very dark pan, you may want to reduce the oven temperature by 25°. Place the cake on a cooling rack and let it cool for about 15 minutes, then invert and carefully remove the pan. Let cake cool completely before pouring the glaze over it.
Make the glaze: Place glaze ingredients in a heatproof bowl and place bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir carefully with a heatproof spatula until glaze is melted and smooth. Let cool slightly then pour all over the cake, letting it dribble down the sides. Top with a small bit of chocolate sprinkles if you like. You may have more than you need for the cake (oh, the horror), so just store it in the fridge for up to a week. Reheat as necessary and use for dipping straweberries or cubes of poundcake.
