Old Vine Zinfandel w/ Skins - 6 Gallon Wine Kit - Master Vintner Sommelier Select

$134.99
+ -

Product details

When vines get past their fourth decade, they produce fewer grapes, but much more intense fruit, giving rich, dense wine* with great character and ageing potential.

Medium-full bodied with firm acidity, this Old Vine Zin shows a combination of red and black fruits--raspberry, blackberry, fig, plum and raisin, along with an intriguing black pepper spiciness on the rich, rolling finish. An excellent match with dark chocolate (try it!), it's also a great barbecue wine (especially chicken), or with lamb, pulled pork or grilled burgers.

Yields 6 gallons

*This recipe kit uses a RealGrape pack to boost flavor and body. Because the grape skins are not dried, they take up more space in your fermentor. This recipe requires the larger 7.9 gallon wine fermentor.

Good, Not Great

Kit did not include cheesecloth for grape skins so had to improvise. Also included additive ingredients not outlined in instructions, so assuming not needed - but makes confusing.

Musty Smell

Wine has been in the carboy for six weeks. Has a very district musty smell to it which is not appealing. Taste is not as bad as the smell... hopeful that after another 10 months it will be better.

WOW! I am very pleased!

This is definitely an excellent value. Just racked into my bottling bucket today and had to sample. It was awesome!!
I am going to age this one for a year and share with only my closest friends who really appreciate a good wine. I would definitely recommend this kit.
