    What would you consider "quick drinking kits"?

    I think the lower end kits are quicker drinking for the most part. The Vintners Reserve, even the Selection level kit. You CAN make these almost to the schedule provided by the manufacturer, let age for a month or two, then drink. They are better if you let them age more, but they can be ok at three months.

    Especially if you pick varieties that are lighter to begin with. I often do the RJS Cru International BC Pinot Noir when needing a quicker red, make it according to the schedule and bottle age for 2 - 3 months, it is very drinkable.

    Just bought the Eclipse kit. Going to leave the Super Tuscan in the carboy for another month, then start the Nebbiolo. Fortunately, our Winter has been fairly mild and my garage temperature has been fluctuating between 57 and 67. I figure that range should be pretty good to ferment another batch.

    Just opened my first bottle of WE Nebbiolo, bottled in January 2019. I made four kits last year, the other three are in bulk storage awaiting my attention. My first sip, a little more than an hour ago, was a bit disappointing. Nice bouquet and flavour, but a tad “spritzy” on the tongue. Allowing it to rest for about 90 minutes has improved the wine tremendously. I can’t compare it to other Nebbiolo wine kits, as WE has been the only kit I’ve tried, thus far. I am very happy with the results of this kit. I made no “tweaks” to this batch, other than allowing it to rest an additional few months before bottling.
    it has great depth, wonderful mouthfeel, and a lingering fruit taste. When I make this kit aga

    Was it the Eclipse? WE has 3 different Nebbiolo kits;

    Eclipse -- high end
    Selection -- mid-range
    World Vineyard -- low end

    Never mind, I just looked at the picture. It was the Eclips kit. Thanks for the feedback

    My daughter gave me that for Christmas a year ago. I love it, too. Just make sure to pour the wine through it very slowly.
