I would not rely on any nice red kit being a good, early drinker. When I first started, I made two kits, which said the wine was drinkable in six months.
They weren't drinkable after the first 12 months! Of course that is just my opinion.
(I'm sure I will catch some flac from someone on this..)
If you want something to drink right away, do this -
Start a nice kit that you know won't be very good for a year are so. It will be worth the wait!
As soon as it gets out of primary, go buy a second carboy and start a summer wine.
Summer wines are sort of glorified wine coolers, except the summer wines are made from real wine, not beer. WineXpert, RJ Spagnol and others make great summer wine kits.
Whether red or white, they are pretty much drinkable right after bottling. I have made several of the RJ Spagnol and friends have made other brands. All of them were very nice. VERY NICE! Pour them over ice and add bits of your favorite fruit.
As a matter of fact, I have three summer wine kits - one started and the other two ready to go.
To be honest, you just might be disappointed trying to drink a nice, non-summer-wine red kit wine in only a few months.
The other alternative is to make a white wine. They are always better with age, but tend to be drinkable in a few months.
Good luck with your choice.
