Cabernet Sauvignon Small Batch Wine Kit - Winexpert Classic 1 Gallon Kit
This is the second small batch Cabernet that I've purchased. The first turned out so well I ordered another. I havent made the second yet. I have been a home brewer for many years but had never made wine. I was really impressed on how easy the kit made it for me and how well it turned out.
I ordered the one gallon kits because there was no 6 gallon kits available. We do like the wine expert Cabernet.
This Cabernet Sauvignon was the third batch I made. I’m glad I decided to make one gallon batches, rather than huge amounts, but now that it’s done, I wish there were more bottles. This kit has some oak sawdust, which has been toasted, to impart some of the vanilla, oaky flavor of barrel storage. I had some minor issues with quantity, maybe not topping up enough, minor loss due to all the sediment and a little trouble with my siphon getting clogged while transferring. So I only got four bottles, rather than the expected five. I tried the first bottle last night and was pleasantly surprised. My first two batches turned out really well, so I expected this to be good. So I’m happy because it was really, really good: Flavorful, powerful, well-rounded, easy to drink and paired well with the meal. Highly recommended and I’ll be making another batch soon!
