Sorry I missed this thread, Spree. I started the same Shiraz in December last year. I added a 2 pound f-pack of raisins to the primary and squeezed it daily to get all the flavor. When it hit 1.04, I racked it to the secondary (minus the f-pack) and added the oak. Joe (one of our esteemed members) convinced me to "think outside the box" and layer my flavors. It is bulk aging now (another one of my "new" methods) and tastes awesome. My stepson thinks it may be my best yet! We shall see this Spring.

Yours looks nice in the bottle. And I like the austere label.

I downloaded the Avery toolbar for Word from Avery.com and used the wizard to set it up. Now I have a template I can use for all my wines.

Nice clean label. How does the wine taste to you? What is the significance of "Strait Wine?"

Strait is a family name.

As for the taste it was great. Its been aging about 10 months now. I tried some at 6 mos and it definitely tasted young. Now it tastes pretty good.
