RC 212 will do the job just fine all by itself. The EC1118 is the backup in case you are not keeping temps right etc. Some extra tannin is always a good idea.

Yep, what he said. I've ordered this kit as well. Among other things, I'm making a Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon this spring. I'm going to start this kit after I press the Chilean and add those skins to make this a 4 Country Cab.
