DetailsThe exotic bouquet of Master Vintnerâ„˘ Pinot Noir captures luscious aromas of ripe red fruits and spiced chocolate in six gallons of hand-crafted wine.
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 Vintnerâ„˘ 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.

3 months agoVery niceI made this about 4 months ago and it's still aging. Before bottling, of course I tasted it. Although it needs aging, I could tell by the depth and fruitiness this wine has that this is going to be a winner.July 18, 2018Purchased

8 months agoAbsolutely loved itThis wine was excellent right out of the carboy and i would suggest it to anyone. Full bodied, and bursting with flavor, I couldn't keep it on the shelf. I was able to hide the last bottle away just to see what it would taste like with a little agingMay 2, 2018Purchased

I would research how-to and how much sugar to add. Be careful though, I had challenges degassing this kit.The description above mentions the use of oak chips for this wine â€śPinot Noir with oak (not included)â€ť. What oak chips and how much of them do you recommend using?BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure what is NOT INCLUDED. We purchased this and the oak chips were included? We used what the kit contained. Sorry, we can't be of help with this.How long do these kits generally hold up for before using and what is the proper storage recommendation?
Also what is the juice concentration percentage on these Master Vintner kits?BEST ANSWER: At least 1 year if not longer without any negatives in the final wine. Out of direct light, below 70 degrees. These are 10 liter kits so there is more concentrate than in some - the percentage varies and the kits are not rated this way.would it be OK to add some oak spirals while fermenting or after? Would this hurt the flavor?BEST ANSWER: If you desired more oakiness, you could add some spirals to your secondary. Do so cautiously though, a small amount goes a long way.
