I am making a Vintners Reserve Merlot and I just got to Stage 2 fermenting where I transfered the wine to the carboy. I noticed that the wine color is a bright redish color and not the red/purple wine color. Is this correct?

This is my first kit so I am new to all this.

It will change after all the solids fall out. You should make a Raspberry wine from fresh fruit and see the color changes it goes through!:<

After the sediment falls to the bottom of the carboy you'll see a noticable difference. It also won't be opaque.

I thought the same thing the first kit I made. The color will change.

How long can I age this wine? I been reading that you can only age Vintage Reserve wines up to 6 months.

I am wondering why not longer?
