These Eclipse Wine Kits each produce a six-gallon (U.S.) yield with quality comparable to many commercial wines. The ingredients for red wine are regional specific and include appropriate varietal grape skins to add flavor, color and texture. Some of the more popular red wine kits found here include the Barossa Valley Shiraz, which is a full-bodied, dry, smooth wine with a strong, 14.5% alcohol content.
The Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel is another gold medal winner that combines the taste and aroma of ripened berries along with a character strongly influenced by French Oak. It's a bold, dry, full-bodied wine with medium intensity. Other popular red wine making kits include the Italian Piedmont Barolo and the Stag's Leap Merlot.
