Customer Reviews"Don't expect full body or taste per instructions " Review by Taco (Posted on 10/17/16)
Have used this to determine what works best as I enjoy Merlot. If you follow the instructions you will be somewhat disappointed. It's designed for a lighter body even though it says "Full Body" as you follow. Also the ingredients require fine tuning for taste. This is why I give it a 3 because the instructions can be misleading. In my recipe, I use one can per gallon. This brings the body closer and I use distilled water. I always add enough sugar to bring it too 12% alcohol and test the acid/PH level to keep it in the proper range. This is part of the fun part of wine making... experimenting!! I will say that the juice is consistent in acid level and gravity in every can unlike another brand.."Alexander's Sun Country Merlot " Review by Deano (Posted on 3/25/16)
Used 2 cans to insure good color. Fermentation and clarification fine. Taste did not come near a Merlot. Never going to buy This product again.
