5.0 / 5.012 ReviewsExcellent wineThis and the other Alex reds make great wines. I recommend not using more than 124 ounces water per can. You will probably have to adjust TA but the SG will be spot on. This makes a great 6 bottle batch. For a really great finish use 1 ounce medium toast French oak chips after the second rack. Leave in for 30 days before racking and bottling.November 12, 2011A great wine with wild fruitsI first used the Burgundy concentrate to add to my chokecherries for body and dryness and it worked perfectly. The result was body, a full flavor with dryness that complemented the chokecherry._x000D__x000D_Next, I blended it into a local grape not noted for wine and it brought it into a dry, soft vintage that was just pleasant to sip with venison steaks and roasts.March 7, 2012Makes a great, full-bodied, dry redI really like the wine I made from this juice. It made a nice dry, full-bodied dark red wine with a nutty flavor after aging it a year. I recommend using Pasteur Red yeast with this juice. I plan on getting more of this in the future.June 20, 2012Quality concentrateDry and full bodied. This is one of the better Alexanders concentrates. Don't be stingy and use extra concentrate, rather than topping it off with a lot of water. I age my reds at least a year and this came out well.December 30, 2012quite goodI tasted this one after ageing it only three months, and it was already drinkable. I mean as good as some store bought table wines. It has a little bit of that young wine bite. I expect it to be much smoother with some age.June 29, 2013Superior quality ConcentrateIt makes a dry and full bodied wine. This is perfect for filling head space when aging wine without diluting it with water.September 7, 2013Full bodied dark red wineIt came out nice and dry with a fruity/nutty flavor. This type of wine works well with the Red Star Pasteur Red dry yeast. Give it at least a year before drinking.November 15, 2013Good by itself or as an enhancerI've made wine using just this concentrate, adjusting for acidity and tannins and it's very good. But its real value is enhancing kits and turning good wine into very good wine.January 10, 2014Full bodied and dryOne of the better Alexanders concentrates. Its ages well, giving best results after a year. I get better results using an extra can rather than topping off with water and diluting the wineMarch 29, 2014California Concentrate Premium BurgundyI have used the Premium Burgundy concentrate in home wine making for over 20 years, never by itself but always as an addition to garden or wild fruit in wine. Without the concentrate the wild fruit wines end up tasting like "medicine" and garden fruit wines tend to have a superlight taste. Don't forget that with concentrate you don't have to destem/crush/press grapes and you have that much less mess to deal with when seperating the primary pulp from the wine going to the secondary.February 19, 2017Purchased
