    How can I darken my Red Wine

    I did add pectic enzyme at the beginning of primary. I was probably at 70-73 degrees and never made it to 75-80 so maybe that's why. I've already pressed and am seeing the lighter color. It looks fine I was just hoping for a darker wine...thanks for the reply

    How can I darken my Red Wine

    Hi, I am in the process of making a Cabernet from grapes. My primary is complete but the wine is a bright red rather than dark red or purple. Skins were in contact for 8 days and were punched down 3 times a day. Is there anyway to make it darker?... thanks
