very tasty
I 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!

Second 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.

Great Taste
I 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.

Tip the Scales
I like to experiment with blends. Sometimes it pays off. Sometimes not. But this tipped the scales from so-so dark red to amazing.

Excellent 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.

Good Currant flavor
I 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.

Nice taste
For 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.

Makes Great Wine
I 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.
