Bought this kit as my first red wine batch. My first white was pretty good. This was simple, but results were a bit below average for a $100 kit. I got 28 bottles, but taste just so so.
Family red wine favorite. Usually process two batches per year to ensure adequate supplies for the thirsty family and friends.
I bulk aged this kit for 8 months in a glass carboy after fining and stabilizing. The wine came out fantastic with typical pinot noir characteristics with color, taste and aroma. Bulk aging made it seem like a more mature wine in comparison to other kits I have made in the past. Strawberry jam aroma and taste with a long finish that goes down smooth. Soft tannins from the dark fruit flavors this wine offers.
I bought this wine kit because it would turn out a little lighter than a cabernet and would be a good wine for the summer. I just bottled it today and it turned out to be a little sweeter then i was wanting but a few months of aging will improve this wine , over all i would recommend this wine kit
