Best wine I've ever made.
10/10.... I used to have a store bought favorite red wine.... not anymore! I used the French Toasted Oak Cubes while it was still fermenting (day ~3ish) and it came out phenomenally. Everyone raved, so it's time for batch #2!

Easy to make and rivals
Easy to make and rivals more expensive brands. I will purchase again.

Tasty, but not exactly what I expected
I'll start by saying I have been making beer for some time, but this was my first batch of wine. Also, it probably fermented a little "cooler" than in should since it was winter. The gravity readings matched what they should, it just took a little longer to get there.

The end product was very "berry" forward, more like a Pinot than a Cab. The finish wasn't as tart/acidic as I like from Cabernets. With that said it is a good wine and we will drink the two+ cases we ended up with, it is just slight different from what I expected when I ordered a Cab.

If you like slightly fruity/berry forward reds, this is a good wine for you.

Tim's Excellent Cabernet
I'm doing my second 6 gallons of Tim Vandergrift's Cabernet Sauvignon because everyone raved about the first batch, and it's easy to make. I used other kits, but Tim's are very predictable and the results are spot on.

Best Cabernet Sauvingnon kit I have made
Just follow the instructions and it came out great. I added some additional oak chips and aging and it came out even better.

First kit I ever completed.
This was an easy kit to follow and the results were good. A very nice drinkable wine and with age it gets even better. The only thing I did not like was the video Tim Vandergrif posted using this kit had different instruction than what came in the box. Since he's "the expert" I was confused as to what to listen to. Although he does say follow the instructions in your kit. I just find it useful as a first timer to watch the steps as I go along. I got a gift card for Midwest for Christmas. I haven't used it because shipping alone will eatbuo the gift card,

Approximately what alcohol content did this have?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I've had these kits start between 1.080 and 1.100 so if you made no modifications to the kit (add sugar etc.) it will finish at approx. 10.5% - 13% ABV.
Does this kit come with oak?
Daniel S on Apr 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes the kit comes with oak chips.
Have bottled and enjoyed this wine already, surprised by the full body. Good selection for lower priced kit.
If I were to add oak to this kit when would it be added ?
A shopper on Dec 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have oaked at different stages with good results. If using oak powder, I prefer to add it during primary. But with chips, I find that oaking in the carboy after clearing works well. It's a more controlled oaking where I can focus on the length and amount of oaking to get the exact flavor I want.
Is it appropriate to add extra tannin and if so how much to make it somewhat bolder?
D K on Mar 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Adding tannin can ruin your wine very quickly. It's easy to add too much. So I only add tannin to lighter fruit wines that need a little extra punch. I have never added tannins to a red grape wine kit.
What is included in the kit?
A shopper on Dec 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Grape Juice, Yeast, Yeast Nutrient, Oak chips, Instructions, and degassing/clarifying additives for use prior to bottling.
I know that this wine can age for a year, at most. How long is it preferred it ages at minimum?
A shopper on Jul 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: After 3 Month's you're going to have nice flavor. 6+ months is best
