- Reaction score
I have a couple kits that are in carboys, a shiraz and a cabernet franc that were from concentrate. The Shiraz just finished clearing and the cab. franc has been aging for about a month. I just tasted them to see how they are coming along and they were surprisingly good even though they are really young. They tasted a little "thin" though. Definitely lacking the structure I usually expect from those wines. They both pretty much seemed like they would turn into some pretty easy drinking wines, which is not what I usually think of when I think of those grapes. Is that normal for a wine at this stage or is it a result of being from concentrate or something else entirely?
