These wines are easy to drink and they go well with or without food. Some people love to call Malbec a working man’s Merlot, as the wine has many of the same characteristics that make Merlot easy to drink, with an added spice and acidity that makes it seem less polished. Malbec is the guy who rides the Harley to Merlot’s guy that drives the Vespa.

Haven't made it yet but the other Crafted Series reds I've made turned out well.

Still cooking

This was a decent kit that is still in the secondary fermentation stage. I waited a week and once the airlock stopped bubbling I added 50 grams of toasted American oak chips and waited another week before racking. Smells good so far. Have to wait another 2 weeks before it's ready to bottle.
