Great kit Review by Ted
Overall seems to contain high quality ingredients and grape skins. I rated 4 stars only because I haven't finished making the kit and haven't tasted it yet. Based on the other reviews, it should be worth the wait. (Posted on 1/18/14)
Had to order another Review by Lewis
This kit was one of my two favorites out of the 9 kits I made last year. I'm to the point now where I've given enough away, and enough people have tasted my wine kits that now they are asking for it. This wine is ultra smooth after the six month mark, and keeps getting better with age. Gave my last bottle away last night to one of my kids. Should have kept it since it was Father's Day.

A bottle of greatness! Review by Adam
I am excited to try the new Eclipse upgrade to the WineExpert Selection kits. We just finished our last bottle of the Napa Valley Stag's Leap District Merlot. An outstanding wine that shocked people when they found out it was made from a kit. It drinks good after several months, but I wish I had waited as patience brings wonderful things to this Merlot. A full body burst of delicious berry flavor and so smooth it is easy to reach for another bottle to share. Set aside half your bottles and don't touch them until after year 2. Ordered this one again!
