The rewards and frustrations of home winemaking

Cab Merlot 7-Month Tasting

Opened for cooking and decided to have a taste. Nose developing nicely, lots of strawberry and overripe fruit. This bottle has a slight fizz. Flavors getting richer, good plums and black cherry with hint of leather or earthiness. Not so sour. Not a depth of richness, though, but it is changing so much over the months I think it will come together this year.
