All 4 taste like crap. Acidic with no fruit or tannin noted. The Syrah and Merlot both have bell pepper up front - blech.
Tomorrow, I'll add the K-Carbonate and move to the garage.
I think I lucked out this Spring. Just checked my Pinot Noir, it was pH of 3.35, tastes and smells very good at this point. Now my Pinot Grigio batches are high in acid, but that was operator error because I added too much tartaric acid (though it was 1/2 of what I should have) because my pH meter was giving me issues (have since replaced with a very stable meter).
