Chilean Cabernet Malbec Carmenere Wine Kit - RJS Cru Select
An intense blend of boldly different grapes, this wine boasts blackberry, black pepper and cedar notes from the Cabernet, along with the bold tannins of that grape. Adding to these, the deep crimson, dark cherry, red fruits and berry notes of Carmenere and the Damson plum, violets, and blackcurrant aromas of the Malbec provide bold, punchy fruit, which gives way leathery notes and a smoky, spicy finish of dark chocolate and tobacco. Although it ages beautifully, firmly restraint on the tannins and mellow acidity allow this wine to be enjoyed while young.
Drink with grilled beef, meat pizza, or dark chocolate.

fermented and twice racked and in clearing stage now. wait a couple weeks to filter and bottle. I spilled a little into a glass on the second rack. Tasted yummy even raw and very young. I am confident this blend will be great next spring!
Wine arrived safely, anxiously waiting to start this batch!
Although new to wine making, only made 60 gal of red/white, I think this wine is outstanding and will keep this blend as a favorite.
