"If you were to ask the average Spanish winemaker in the Rioja wine region of Spain what they thought of Cabernet Sauvignon, they would probably smile rather sheepishly and quip that it makes an excellent blending grape!"
Gorgeous ruby red in color, this medium-bodied wine is Spain's answer to Cabernet Sauvignon, with berry, plum, and herbal notes running to a lush finish of tobacco, leather, and vanilla.

Pairs well with escargot, roast pork or quail or goats milk cheeses
This wine drinks very well, if it had skins with the kit I would give 5 stars. The longer it's in the bottle the better.
Bottled it last week. Haven’t used a 8 L kit for some time but I wanted a Tempranillo and 8 L was the only available. I’m 84 and have been kit wineing since 2009. The Merlot I got last week will be 1,581.btl.s to date. Bill B.
Love this kit. After 6 weeks very drinkable and keeps improving with age. Have already ordered another kit and hope to stay ahead of demand.
We've made this wine twice now. It was a great hit at our son's wedding.
Everyone loves this red.
