Have You Considered this Wine Analogy?

This week we opened another bottle of the Cabernet Sauvignon that we made with a wine kit last summer. If you have followed along, you may remember that we were not particularly impressed with the wine a month after we bottled it. That’s okay. We knew we should really wait longer before drinking it, but hey it was our “first.”  We were actually treating it like a couple’s first baby. Feeding it with nutrients. Monitoring it. Removing the lees (I suppose equivalent to changing a diaper). In any event, near Christmas we tried another bottle of it and were pleasantly surprised. The wine seemed to be fruitier with a smoother body.

This week the wine has matured even more and was very enjoyable.

With summer fresh fruit available soon, I am looking forward to making a cherry or peach fruit wine. As mentioned in yesterday’s blog, making your own wine can be a recession proof measure.

Cheers! Kathy
