Red wine substitutes

Angela asked for a substitute for the red wine in the Lentil Minestrone
soup which I posted.  When looking for a substitute for alcohol you want to
look at what it does in a recipe.  In this recipe it is used as a saute
fluid.  The original recipe used oil and I subbed the red wine because it
was handy.  Other saute fluids I could have used included water, broth, or
balsamic vinegar.

When would we not use balsamic vinegar as a saute fluid?  What foods or
final cooking flavors or international recipes would not work with balsamic
vinegar?  I sometimes wonder about this.
