Product details

The very best winemakers in the world know that exceptional wine starts in the vineyard, with the perfect combination of sunlight, soil, rain and careful cultivation. Crafting your own signature wines to that very same standard starts here...with Sommelier Select Wine Recipe Kits, exclusively from Master Vintner.

The oldest vines (between 60 and 80 years) produce fruit unlike any other. And this Cabernet Sauvignon Recipe Kit features ingredients sourced at the peak of varietal expression, to bring out stupefying levels of fruit and extract. The blackberry, blackcurrant and jammy notes give way to pepper, mint, cedar and black cherry. Dense and dark, with rock-ribbed tannins when young, it will round out to a smooth lustrous finish that goes on forever at its peak.

Sommelier Select Old Vine Cabernet includes grape skins* in the kit. Grape Skins are an excellent addition to wine kits. Not only do they enhance body, mouth-feel and tannin, they also boost color, flavor and aroma. All of the red juices are macerated in their wineries to get the most out of the skins, but adding an extra dose of skin material turns up the volume on the wine character.

Toast the moments that matter with Sommelier Select, and make deliciously drinkable wines that you're going to love sharing with family and friends.

Yield: 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.

Haven’t drank any yet. Went to start initial fermentation and wine kit was missing bag for grape skins.

Just bottled 7/5. Initially seems to have a light but flavorful body. Will give 6 mos. to mature. I am hoping the light body stays as it is a very refreshing Cab Sauv.

First taste

Just took first taste before degassing(which I primarily do by vacumn), and though spritzy could tell taste will be great!

We have made 2 batches of this wine and it is great right from the start. We have left it to age for 2years and it is devine.. The tannins mellow out very nicely and you are left with bright berry flavor and a subtle chocolate flavor.

So far, so good. Just finished clearing. Tastes good now, but can't wait to try after some aging. My second kit with skins, and I can tell a difference in the finished product.
