Good Morning: We returned home after 7 months, prior to leaving the family that I thought would transfer the wine for me failed to do so. It has been in the 1st carboy from the fermenter for the past 8 months. It is Merlot - 2 - 5 gal. carboys. Will it still be good - any suggestions how to proceed. Thanks for the help. I also was contacted in November about a donation, I think that I made it, (I tried) how do I confirm that it went thru??? Thanks again.
