I got two of these at $50 off each on sale.

The first one is complete and I tweaked it a lot..

Added 1 kilo each of frozen blackberries and raisins, plus a litre of boiled banana juice ( about a dozen ripe bananas).. fermented out to dry.

It's thickened it up a lot without over doing the fruit flavour.. it's more that the blackberry seems to have blended into the merlot. Well it was only a kilo after all. the wine is currently bulk storing in the barn.

I've started another one today .. same recipe.. thing is I'm tempted to mess with an fpac of blackberry this time.. and finish it sweeter..

After the thrill of the chocolate port.. any thoughts on me making a blackberry chocolate fpac .. and adding it to the merlot?

That sounds good. I had very good results using a very high quality chocolate extract on my Strawberry Chocolate Port.

You think I should add the chocolate upfront.. or at the end Wade?

Was thinking 2 cups of top quality cocoa powder, your thoughts appreciated.

Cocoa powder up front definelety and if that dont do it go with the extract at the end to blend it in, thats exactly the way I did it.
