"My kind of wine" Review by Wineman (Posted on 5/22/16)

This is the 4rd time I have made this Red wine. The past 2 times was great. This one is now in the aging phase but sure looks good. Hard to wait on it. I know I don't need to age it, but I like it better after about 6 months.

"Easy drinking wine" Review by lovehorses100 (Posted on 10/27/13)

Easy to make and very nice early drinking wine. I do add a little more sugar or corn syrup. But good going by recipe also.

"Very good" Review by David (Posted on 6/2/13)

This was my first ever kit. It turned out well. It was drinkable every early. Patience is something I don't have much of. It is all gone now so I am going to reorder.

"ok" Review by son of lar (Posted on 5/17/13)

I thought this would be better. Early taste was not good and had an odd aftertaste. After 5 weeks it became ok. I would give it 3 stars but it may become pretty good after 3 months or so based on how it is improving. If you want an early drinker I prefer the bergamis or vieux chateau as I have made both and they are great.

"First Time " Review by James (Posted on 2/9/13)

This is the first time I have made this wine. I followed the directions exactly. I even added potassium metabisulfite (like the directions say) so I could store it more than 6 months. No Way!! This turned out great and will not last that long.

"I'll buy it again" Review by Mick (Posted on 10/20/12)

I enjoyed the Cal Red. I don't follow the receipy simply because I like to do my own thing. I add sugar and rack at 4 months, and bottle at 8-12 months. I find it softer and smoother.

"Great lighter fare red wine " Review by Warren W (Posted on 7/19/12)

The California Red has been a favorite of mine and many friends. I have made it 3-4 times and have had great results each time.

"Light and easy table wine." Review by Bill (Posted on 5/24/12)

Best red wine I have been able to get consistent quality. Easy to drink and goes well with most foods.

"Easy drinking light bodied red wine" Review by Barkhousebob (Posted on 2/28/12)

This California Red is a great kit to make to impress your friends that don't like the shutter of a full bodied wine. If you are trying to learn to like the taste of a red wine, this is an easy drinking wine that pairs well with most anything.
