Hi,

I'm a newbie winemaker. This past Sept 2017 was my second attempt to make wine from grapes. I used 2 cases of zinfandel combined with one merlot case and made 5 gallons. First yr. was disastrous.

It tastes ok at first, but has an off taste as you finish the mouthful.

Does anyone know of a place or person I can send a sample of my wine to and have them taste it so they can tell me how I might fix the taste?

Would appreciate your advice.

Thanks,
Joe

I brought samples of my wine to commercial winemakers and asked them for honest feedback. It really helped me improve, even if was hard to hear sometimes.

If you get it fixed I'm sure there are several people who would be happy to "taste" your wine for you!

Good luck.
