I have only made wine from kits whose instructions call for immediate botteling after it is clear.Would it benifet 3 mos. or so of bulk-aging prior to botteling?

Aging of the wine will help. Doesn't matter if its in bulk or bottle.

Steve is right: wine improves with aging.

I always age mine in bottles as I like to have my carboys free for
the next batch :D

If you plan on bulk aging make sure you top up your wine in the carboy. If you don't top it up the wine will oxidize.
