Cellar Craft's Sterling Collection red wine kits are the only budget-level red wine kits on the market that include a "virgin," never-processed crushed grape pack to include in the fermentation. Made entirely from region-specific varietal juice and concentrate, and skins from the same harvest lots that the juice comes from, these kits produce a true varietal wine on a short timeline! Designed to be bottled in 5 weeks, these kits will benefit from an additional 6-12 months of cellaring in the bottle.
Makes 6 gallons, or 2 cases, of finished wine
Cellar Craft's Description
This California Cabernet, fermented on a 1.5 liter virgin crushed California Cabernet Sauvignon grape pack, delivers a characteristically firm-tannin wine with loads of black fruit character made more interesting by the vanilla notes from the oak. The aromatics suggest blackberry and black currant. Flavor is centered around red and black currants which remain evident through the nice finish. Six months of ageing should reveal a harmonized wine with somewhat softened tannins, but the wine will improve for a year or two. This is a wine to serve with beef and lamb.
