Medium-full bodied with firm acidity, this Old Vine Zin* shows a combination of red and black fruits--raspberry, blackberry, fig, plum and raisin, along with an intriguing black pepper spiciness on the rich, rolling finish. An excellent match with dark chocolate (try it!), it's also a great barbecue wine (especially chicken), or with lamb, pulled pork or grilled burgers.
*This recipe kit uses a RealGrape pack to boost flavor and body. Because the grape skins are not dried, they take up more space in your fermentor. This recipe requires the larger 7.9 gallon wine fermentor.

Great flavor, body, and taste!
I have not yet finished the Old Zinfandel. It is currently in the clearing stage. The support I have received from Midwest Supplies has been outstanding. Looking forward to my first taste.
I received my order well packaged and in a very timely manner.
Quality components, good solid instructions. The "goodness" of the wine is yet to be determined as it is entering hte secondary fermenter today.
Advice: Winexpert kits w/skins kits come with a cheesecloth bag for Skins-pulp-and-sticks. This kit does NOT (although it instructs you use a bag of your own gleaning). Be aware of this, as I was scrambling to find something to use on day 1. Left me a little perturbed
this is going to be a very good red wine, will be capable of giving a final decision in Sept. 2019 after bottling
