DetailsAn intense blend of boldly different grapes, this wine boasts blackberry, black pepper and cedar notes from the Cabernet, along with the bold tannins of that grape. Adding to these, the deep crimson, dark cherry, red fruits and berry notes of Carménère and the Damson plum, violets, and blackcurrant aromas of the Malbec provide bold, punchy fruit, which gives way leathery notes and a smoky, spicy finish of dark chocolate and tobacco. Although it ages beautifully, firmly restraint on the tannins and mellow acidity allow this wine to be enjoyed while young.
Drink with grilled beef, meat pizza, or dark chocolate.

4.6 / 5.07 ReviewsStill fermentingEverything in the kit is what I would expect. Fermentation is nearly complete. It will be months before I have an opportunity to taste test. Looking forward to it.May 26, 2019Purchased
3 months agoThis is the 5th or 6th batch I’ve made with this kit over 6 or 7 years. It’s one of my favorites and why I keep coming back to it.May 3, 2019Purchased
5 months agoPersonal favoriteI bought this about 1.5 yrs ago, and we've been really enjoying this wine. My friends and family also love it and compliment this wine more than other kinds I've made. The bottles are disappearing, so I just bought this again, and have started the fermentation. This wine is very good young, so we look forward to having more to drink in a few months.April 7, 2019Purchased

1 year agoWine is good, box and directions need improvementThe box is not cut to accommodate the neck of juice bag, which sits low in box. Directions require a lot of figuring for days to wait. Juice seems to be good, have yet to try finished wine though.April 18, 2017Purchased
