Wondering if anyone has made the RJS Restricted Quantities French Cabernet kit? If so, how was your fermentation? How is aging going? How is it smelling and sampling?Looking to start this kit soon subbing RC212 for D254. I haven't seen too many post about this kit or any of the other 2021 RQ's.

Yes, but it's bulk aging and only on it's second racking. Still too soon to tell how it will turn out. If it's anything like the RQ17 French Cab, I'll be happy with it.

The popularity on 2021 RQ's is low since RQ's have been difficult to source in recent years. Wish Label Peelers would pick them up, but their new Finer Wine kits seem like they might be even better than the best of WE and RJS.

I'm looking forward to starting the RQ kit. I also have a FWK that I will need to start soon as well. I've completed various En Premier kits with good success, and I hear that RQ will produce similar results if not better.

I’ve got one not yet started.
Also picked up a Spanish red and Italian red RQ.
I figured I’d get one of each of the last RQs before the volume reduction.

But the Finer Wine kit can't be a FRENCH Cabernet since their grapes is from California only. Sorry for stating the obvious but having the ability to buy kits where the grapes comes from different origins is, at least for me, very important. YMMV

I'm sure they'll get to it at some point. If not, I'm still switching to FW kits for the most part, with a few RQ's and/or LE's thrown in for regional variety.
