Default Alexander's Sun Country Concentrates

I found a case of Alexander's Vino Rosso on my front porch when I came home from lunch The Fedex guy must have just left it because it was 12F outside and the concentrate wasn't frozen.

This is the second year in a row I've received a case of Alexander's from California Concentrates for my winning entries at the state fair. I just called to let them know how much I appreciate the support for our hobby.

For as long as I've been making wine and mead I've used Alexander's concentrates. I've never made a wine solely from the canned concentrates but I've made a lot of country wines and meads and added a can or two of Alexander's to fill them out, and that's where I think they really shine. In fact, I took a gold medal at the International Mead Festival a couple of years ago using Alexander's concentrate in a pyment.

If you haven't tried them yet, I strongly recommend them to anyone wishing to add some body and complexity to a mead or country wine.

Summer, I just thought I'd let you know that somebody hacked your account and is running an ad campaign through it.

Yeah kinda sounds like it, doesn't it? It's just that I've heard so many people denigrate Alexander's and I really do believe in their product. Is it the best stand alone kit? Maybe not but it can add a lot to a wine or mead with a little imagination.

Just found this looking for reviews. I just bought a can because it was 19 bucks and I wanted to give it a whirl. I just racked my merlot and it tasted decent enough. 20 bucks for 15 bottles of wine. Not sure you can complain too much. You get what you pay for.

If I wanted a quality wine, I would have spend 160 on something in the Eclipse line.

Note: just realized this was my first post. Been lurking so long I thought I would have posted by now.

I've never tried them. Would you give it say, 3 out 5 stars for quality?
