Southern is easy to work with. Efficient and quick delivery of items in stock.
ProsExcellent taste.
ConsStyrofoam packing peanuts are a mess. Due to static electricity they stick to EVERYTHING! May I suggest air filled "pillows". Once unpacked you simply puncture the pillow and dispose of a flat piece of plastic. Many shipping companies like Amazon uses them.

Not the "Full Bodied" wine we expected from a Zinfandel
February 17, 2021
Good color and decent nose but, disappointed in the flavor. Tastes weak.

Instructions indicate to start with a SG of 1.080. that leads to a finish of only 11.5% ABV. That may lead to the weak taste.

Before making wine, Lodi Zinfandels were always my favorite. I was so excited to attempt this wine. Wine kits always say they are drinkable immediately, and usually they are. This wine is drinkable immediately- you get the spice and fruit flavors, but it doesn’t WOW. I really feel this wine will WOW after it ages. I just bottled 7/7/20, so I will reserve final judgment.

I bottled a Lodi cab in early May. My neighbor bottled a Merlot in June. We planned a blind taste test before I re-ordered a red - the Zin, the merlot and the cab. Based on the initial presentation of the Zin, I re-ordered the cab versus the Zin. The merlot was second. But again, I have high hopes for the Zin! It just needs to age.
