I experimented with this last season. I LOVED it. So I have just completed the initial fermentation of the second batch. I am anxiously waiting to taste it. I have high hopes it will be as good as the last.
Very good 7 weeks in, bottling this weekend. Should be great with some age but it's completely drinkable right now.
We did the 6 week clearing time table vs the 4 week for this batch (there is an 8 week time table too). We have 10 bottles on our 6 month rack so we'll see how the aging goes, but this has been one of our favorites so far. It's smooth with an oaky finish, excellent with steak dinners or just to have a glass at the end of the night. If you like dry reds, this is an excellent one.
