Wonderful!!! Would 100% recommend!
This batch of Merlot came out amazing, I however do not follow the instructions. I don't bottle after a month. I add a specific amount of potassium metabisulfite in addition to what they provide in the kits, and top up and let it sit in the car boy for roughly 12-22 months racking three times over that period and leaving oak cubes in it for a majority of that time. And then bottle. Never had a bad batch and I have 10, 6 gallon carboys and have been making wine for 4 and a half years now. But this batch of Merlot is for anyone who like a smooth dry red and mine had a light nutty flavor! Wonderful kit!

Excellent Merlot
We don't usually like Merlots because they are typically light-bodied, and we refer heartier reds. But this kit proved to be excellent. Ages very well.

Very good Merlot lit
This is a great Merlot wine kit that includes all ingredients to make great wine. I also have made Cabernet Savion with great results!

Master Vintner Merlot is a winner
This vintage is full bodied and a favorite with everyone that tries it. Tim's Merlot kit is a real winner and the results are consistent every time.

Merlot in my dreams
This is my first attempt at a wine kit. Everything was well described and the steps are explicit. So far the wine tastes great (before bottling) and I am looking forward to trying it with some age on it. This kit contained charred oak chips which I think improves the syrupy floor of the merlot grape juice, making it a lot more "professional" flavored.

Smooth wine
The Master Vintner Merlot is a smooth red wine, which everyone enjoys -- even those who do not ordinarily like red wine.

Have my merlot in a carboy, it's only day 25, but I'm planning on keeping it there for at least six months. My plan is to transfer back and forth several times while keeping oak cubes in the infuser with it. My goal is to see just how much of an 'oaky' flavor I can get.

Leaking Package
The first batch was very good. The last order had wine leaking inside the box. Not much had leaked out but after making the the wine it turned out a bit sour. I followed all steps to the letter, cleaning and sanitizing etc.. I think the must was somehow contaminated. The bag had a small leak around the seam where the cap is inserted. Not sure if I want to drink this batch. Don't want to get sick.
