You'll first notice a jam fruit aroma. The flavor is a melding of berries and a spiciness for a zesty blush wine. This concentrated juice (68 Brix) will make an excellent wine on its own, or blend it with another fruit or Alexander's Concentrate for a truly unique wine. Other ingredients you will need: Campden Tablets, Yeast Nutrient, Bentonite, Wine Yeast, Acid Blend, and Sparkalloid or other clarifier. Use One 46 oz. can for 2.5 gallons.

Everything was fine
I used one can to make 1 1/4 gallon 'table wine'; using a simple 3 cups sugar/3 cups water/yeast nutrient and topped off in my 1 gallon jug. No acid blend; just stabilizer/clarifiers. Bottled into 375ml bottles (which is just enough for two people to split at dinner); and let it sit for 45 days days. Came out very nicely. Brought two bottles to an event, and people asked for more, so I am guessing my batch was not too shabby. I will be making this again.
Adding a can will make your zinfandel taste much better, with a deeper and richer flavor. The extra volume will help fill the head space in the aging tank as well.
By itself it makes a tasty 1 gallon wine. If you plan on making larger amounts, like 5 gallons, use an extra can beyond what the directions say.
I added a can to low end a kit that made a fair wine, and this time the wine came out quite good. Much thicker and richer tasting. I've also made good stand alone 1 gallon batches.
