Although I am relatively new to this, I consider myself a kit guy. I agree with the sentiment that you can spend a lifetime in the kit realm and never run out of things to try, especially if you consider all the tweaks that are possible. The Argentine Malbec I have now aging already meets or exceeds many of the commercial Mendoza Valley Malbecs I have tried. It is quite exciting. However, I am not one to say never. I am curious enough to try just about anything once just for giggles. I guess that is how I got into wine making in the first place! I currently have a DB going, just to see what all the fuss is about. I will no doubt at some point try a "from scratch" fruit wine or two. But for the most part, I think I will be quire content with doing high to medium end kits.
