5.0 / 5.020 Reviewsvery tastyI made a black currant melomel from this base, with raspberry blossom honey and a few dried currants added in the secondary. Also gave it a little dark roast American oak. Two years later, that mead still tastes like a black currant explosion. Love it!February 3, 2012Second time for using this.Bought this product before and combined with other fruit bases for a wine that turned out to be my favorite and the favorite of others. The flavor is very good and consistent. Highly recommend.January 16, 2017Purchased
12 months agoGreat TasteI used two of those cans to make a 6 Gallon Batch of wine. Did not add any sweetener and tried it to taste after being bottled for 4 month._x000D_For my taste it was a bit on the dry side, but most likely would mellow if aged longer._x000D_However, my wife was extremely pleased and she thought it was a great tasting expensive RED wine. She loves this wine and I have serious doubts that the remaining 27 bottles have much of a chance to age for very long. I hid four bottles, just to see what this wine tasts like after about a year.August 13, 2012Tip the ScalesI like to experiment with blends. Sometimes it pays off. Sometimes not. But this tipped the scales from so-so dark red to amazing.September 29, 2017Purchased
3 months agoExcellent sub for fresh currants.Made 3 gals. last year and it's almost gone. Just about to start another. Makes a really great wine with the 3 gal.recipe. I recommend it to anyone who likes fruit wines.October 19, 2012Good Currant flavorI used two cans and got a great taste of Currants. I agree about not adding sweetener, this is all you need, it will be dry and excellent._x000D_Highly recommended for fruit wines.December 6, 2012Nice tasteFor a 6 gallon batch I used 2 cans, so it would not be too thin. I didn't add sugar, just the concentrate. I aged it 6 months and the taste mellowed a bit, but it still has a nice black current flavor.January 12, 2013Makes Great WineI bought this because my wife found a loca winery that made this and she loved it. For Christmas, her sister bought a case of it but it was very weak compared to the year before. The winery said it was because it is a vintage wine and changes from year to year. I call bs. It was just watered down. _x000D_I decided to make my own and gave out bottles for Christmas. Christmas day 5 people finnished off 4 bottles. It turned out great and just what my wife expected. Hopefully it will have a little time to age before it is all gone. Ready to make more.January 18, 2013Fantastic as alwaysI am a big fan of Midwest, and as always, you just deliver in spades!!!December 21, 2015
