Product Details

Master Vintner™ Cabernet Sauvignon makes one gallon of medium-bodied wine with moderate tannins, featuring savory notes of dark, dried fruit behind aromas of ripe plum and vanilla.

Yield: 1 Gallon (approximately 5 wine bottles)

Master Vintner™ Cabernet Sauvignon gains depth and complexity with oak aging (not included), developing an aroma of peppery-spice that melts into flavors of smoked cedar, coffee and tobacco.

Good for starters
This kit was my first attempt at red. It was light bodied, good aroma and just a tad sweet. Although not quite what I expected, several of us with different tastes enjoyed this wine.

I will make this wine again.

Still fermenting
So far so good Only the bentonite issue found so far. I expect it will take a bit longer to get to dryness than the instructions note

Easy Peazy
An ideal batch size for someone who wants some wine, but not a load of bottles of the same variety. The instructions are easy to follow, and the ingredients yield a simply smashing product. Buy...make...enjoy -- it's just so easy!

What is contained in the kit?
A shopper on Jul 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Every thing you need to make wine. Juice, yeast, stabilizers and clatifiers.
Can you make small batch in a regular size kit?
Katrina M on Dec 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We made a small batch in a regular sized jug and it didn't quite turn out right. We are letting it sit for a few years and maybe it will be better. I suggest buy a big kit if you have a larger fermenter and a small kit if you have a small one. Don't try to make a small batch in a large fermentor or a large batch in a smaller one. It was a good learning experience though. It was our first time making wine though.
Can you add oak chips to this batch? If so, how many?
R U on Nov 8, 2015

You can definitely add oak chips to this batch. The recommended "dosage" would be 2.5-

oz per 5 gallons

and would need to be in contact with the wine for two to three months. I'd say that an ounce or so would do the trick without having to weigh out partial ounces. The type of oak cube would be up to you as far as what you're looking to get out of it. There are descriptions for all of the oak cubes that we sell right on our website.
Is this wine suitable for long term aging, IE: 5-10 years?
V A on Aug 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These kits are best consumed at around 3-4 months of age.
I have a packet of benzonite in my kit, it's labelled 'Packet A' , but the instructions don't say when to add it to the wine before/during fermentation....
I'd assume Packet A is added near the beginning, but...thought it best to ask.
D F on Jun 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Bentonite is the first addition added. Mix with a small amount of warm water and stir well, place in the bottom of the fermentor, then add the juice. Sorry if there is no mention. Not all kits actually need this additive.
