Rich flavors of cherry and tart raspberry merge with notes of dark, juicy currants and bright red strawberry to complement a luxurious, velvety mouthfeel. Pairs well with sharp cheese, pork, veal and salmon.
Age Master Vintner™ Pinot Noir with oak (not included) to develop an elegant and intense full-bodied wine, deep with refined tannins and notes of coffee and tobacco.

4.8 / 5.06 ReviewsCan't wait to try thisA delightful package - I can hardly wait to start tonight - they just need to work out a few kinks in the instructions and packaging. Reading the instructions, "Paquet A" - Bentonite - is not mentioned, leading one to think it's not needed. Do the Siligel and Liquigel replace Bentonite in this and future kits? The Potassium Metabisulphite packet is labeled "Paquet B" but the instructions call it "Packet 3" - not a big deal since the words on the foil are unmistakable. Same thing for "Paquet C" - Potassium Sorbate - in the instructions, it's called "Packet 4" but one will clearly know which it is. I'm going to do a simultaneous fermentation of this juice and one gallon of the Alexanders canned Pinot Noir concentrate and try to determine a difference. See you in 12 months!

8 months agoNo need to wait 12 monthsI bottled the Master Vintner today. Color, body, aroma hands down far superior to the Alexanders. The taste is indeed delicious today, and no doubt will get better every day. The Alexanders is not as colorful, is thinner, and not as aromatic. This is a first rate, quality product. Next up for me: Small batch Cab Sav and Merlot blend!February 15, 2015Pinot NoirThis was my first attempt at wine making. The process was easy to follow. The end result was 4+ bottles of wine. I had the opportunity to attend a wine tasting a few days after my batch was finished, so I was able to try 3 winery produced Pinot's as a comparison. The thre I tasted were fairly comparable in clarity (excellent), acidity, and tannins. By comparison, my did not clarify fully, which doesn't create an iss ue for me. Due to this, the acidity and tannins were a little more present. But the flavor of my batch was slightly fuller than the commercial wine. I actually enjoyed mine very much. This kit was a great choice for my first. I will try something else next, but I will do this again.October 1, 2015Fermented in oak lined stainless steel. After 22 days and following all instructions plus added racking off the lees, this is turning out to be an excellent batch. Iâ??m waiting for a 1 gal. Oak barrel to arrive and will rack to it and leave for at least 90 days.ð??·ð???December 2, 2017Purchased
9 months agoI'm not a dry drinker, but made this batch for daughter in law. She said it was the best she's had. Only makes five bottles and I dropped one. So more expensive than what I normally buyFebruary 26, 2017Purchased
