For a $50 wine kit, this is an excellent wine. I used a custom oak blend of cubes: 2/3 American medium and 1/3 French medium +; the oak was used for only 10 days during secondary fermentation. 10 days was enough for a fruity flavor with a mild tannin level. Extra aging with oak would probably add flavor and tannins.
Your minimum order to get free shipping is too high. But the kits are good. Thumbs up to Weekday Merlot!
This wine is very easy to make. And for the price can’t be beat
I'll start by saying this was my first kit. I have made multiple small batch fruit wines and although everything is still aging I was happy enough with the results to move on to "real" wine. I followed the directions exactly (I was tempted to GoFerm the yeast) and everything went as planned until the end. The wine didn't clear completely so I left it for another week or so. I am used to using Bentonite and then Sparkeloid and I wasn't sure if using either of them on top was a good thing so I just bottled. Although "young", the wine tastes very promising for something so inexpensive so I'm just going to let it sit for a few months and have it be what it said it would be. My weekday wine. I have moved on to a Chardonay to try again, but upgraded to Winemaker's Reserve
Nice middle of the road - definitely priced right. The name says it all :)
