Just started a high-end Cabernet Sauvignon RJS kit and transferred the wine from the Primary fermenter to the secondary fermenter carboy tonight (day 7). It says to begin fining and clearing in about seven days (day 14) once the sp. grav reaches 0.996 or less. I am leaving on day 14 for a week. Any issues with leaving the wine in this vessel without fining and clearing for 14 days?

Personally as long as I had a good airlock and it was filled when I left I'd have no qualms about staying in secondary for an extra 7 days - even without topping off.

Ok. That sounds great. 14 days it is! I appreciate the quick responses.
