The Cab Sauv Rose has pretty much cleared. I added the clarifiers last weekend, but it still needs to sit until the end of the month (per instructions). I tried to get a good photo of the Rose, but the lighting isn't great in in the basement. Rose (in clarification step), Vermentino (bulk aging), and IM Pink Lemonade (still fermenting) in the photos. I'll get a photo of it in a wine glass when I rack and taste it at the end of the month.

I racked the Cab Sauv Rose after letting it sit for 4-ish weeks (following the instructions). It's now going to bulk age until I need the carboy for Fall juice buckets. The flavor on this one already has surpassed our expectations. We taste a lot of strawberry and raspberry up front, and there is a good amount of acidity on the back end. My wife and I both can taste that it's a Cab Sauv grape, but we really don't know how to describe why yet. That will need more testing later. If this kit is ever offered again, we would re-up on it every time.

How "dry" does it taste like?
I know that kit does not come with f-pack.

It definitely tastes dry. The nose on it and fruit forward flavor both trick your mind, though; maybe also because it is still young. I wouldn't compare it to any red wine, but as far as a rose goes, this is one of the few that I would be happy to drink.
