This is a great kit. I am still bulk aging this kit but have stolen a taste or 2 here and there... this kit is fantastic! I highly recommend this kit. The only reasons I did not recommend this for a first kit are
1) It needs to age and who wants to age thier first kit!?!?
2) It has a BIG grape pack so this is a little more difficult to make than a kit without the grape skins.

I would like oak cubes instead of what comes with it but that is a VERY minor detail.

I will update this when I bottle and again when we start to drink it.
