A bold but subtle combination of Pinot Noir and rich, ripe blackberry, this wine is silky smooth in the mouth, with the cherry/berry spice of Pinot giving it a juicy, sappy finish.
Lightly chilled to highlight the body, it's not only refreshing and zesty, but also a perfect foil for dark chocolate, soft cheeses and lazy afternoons on the patio.

This is a nice mellow wine - we've made it a couple of times, and have gotten rave reviews from friends. The Pinot Noirs and Cabernets love to foam pretty bad and spray out through the airlock the first day or two after you add the yeast (white wines never seem to have that problem with me), so keep a couple of paper towels around the airlock.
Nice wine. I have bottled half and letting the other half age. I didn’t use all of the blackberry syrup. I think it makes it too sweet I held out about 24 oz. taste test as you add to get the flavor you prefer. It’s a fun wine with a decent Pinot and the blackberry syrup makes it nice for those who don’t like really dry wines. I prefer it semi-sweet. I haven’t shared much yet, but expect positive reviews. Great price for a fun wine.
Don’t know why it worked out this way because I followed the instructions to a T. It taste really good, but the alcohol content was very low. Doesn’t even taste like wine to me. The only thing I can think of is it stopped being active after about 4 days. Had a lot of water and a small amount of liquid to begin with.
Nice balanced wine that was straightforward to produce.
