Wine improves with age, I improve with wine

My neighbor ordered 1 too and the same thing happened to his order. They canceled it and said it wasn't available. I pretty much made this kit by the book other then adding a cup of raisins to the primary and tossing in a medium toast oak spiral during bulk ageing. I usually bulk age anywhere from 3-6 months before bottling. IMHO I think this kit matures in about a year. With that said I have 6 batches in the cellar ranging from 6 months to 3 years old.Jumby,
I guess you realized that Walmart lied to us. There was no inventory, and they cancelled my order. So I started a thorough search and found, what I think is the last Petit Verdot kit in the country. 'Just got it yesterday, so I'm really anxious to see how it comes out. Any suggestions on yeast selection, etc? Or did you just make it "by the book"? How long does it take to mature?
