We did a wine tasting evening last week where they sampled wines similar to each of the 5 LE17 kits. This is the one they served that was comparable to the Vermentino. It was similar to a Pinot Grigio but with a deeper flavor if that makes sense?

You probably found this already, but: "Think of flavors like white peach, green apple, fresh lime and even a bit of dried tarragon on the finish."

Just in case anyone is wondering about the other comparable wines we tried, here they are:
The Cabernet Franc was comparable to Sandhill's Cabernet Franc



The Milagro was comparable to the Red Guitar Old Vine Tempranillo Garnacha

And the Grenache Cabernet was comparable to The Strapper Grenache Shiraz Mataro

Vermentino scheduled to arrive today. Sadly, I have no carboys for it.

Need to move the WS Amarone out of the barrel and into bottles. That will move the 3 Country cab into the barrel, freeing up a carboy so I can start the Vermentino.

Has anyone gotten an indication of when the RJS LQ's will start showing up? I've emailed the guys at FVW, but haven't gotten any indication yet.
