We tried our first sample of the Cabernet we are making and it wasn't bad. I was nervous tasting it as the temp of the wine is about 70* or so and still slightly bubbling. It just didn't sound very tasty-turns out, however ,that it actually was. We'll see after the next round of tasting. This is really fascinating to learn about the entire process. Next, we'll be racking the wine into it's initial storage vessel to clarify, and we will re-rack several times over the next 45 days or so. Then will store it in our oak barrel for 6 months minimum. Very cool stuff. xo
