I made this kit and bottled it two days ago. (Didn't actually bottle, but bagged it, instead. My summer wines I put in the bags, which go with the wine-on-tap dispensers that George sales.) Before fermenting, I added enough sugar to bump the alcohol ABV to about 12%. I like it that way.
It is very strong of blackcherry; way too easy to drink!!!
It really is a nice summer wine and I'm sure it will go over well at the various parties and summer functions I attend. It will be long-gone by the end of September I'm sure.
I also bagged an RJS peach chardonnay the same day. ABV also about 12%. Great summer wine.
