Sommelier Select™ by Master Vintner®The oldest vines (between 60 and 80 years) produce fruit unlike any other. This Cabernet Sauvignon has stupefying levels of fruit and extract. The blackberry, blackcurrant and jammy notes give way to pepper, mint, cedar and black cherry. Dense and dark, with rock-ribbed tannins when young, it will round out to a smooth lustrous finish that goes on forever at its peak. Sommelier Select™ Old Vine Cabernet Sauvignon includes grapeskins* in the kit. Grapeskins are an excellent addition to wine kits. Not only do they enhance body, mouth-feel and tannin, they also boost color, flavor and aroma. This is because all of the raw ingredients for these things are found in the skin of a red grape. All of our red juices are macerated in our wineries to get the most out of their skins, but adding an extra dose of skin material turns up the volume on the wine's character. Yield: 6 Gallons *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.

I'll need to ferment it before the
as this aged it got better and better. My wife will have me make this again soon.
Mine turned out rather light but with a nice bouquet and Wonderfull flavor. Will be a nice cab in 6+ months...
I’m just in the process of making the wine so I haven’t had a chance to taste it yet. My only complaint is they don’t put any wine bottle labels in the kit.
