Yes, we bought a bucket of the 08 Syrah (shiraz) and made about 3.5-4 gallons. We tried them at about 5 months in the bottle, and it was still too young, but good. We put them in the cellar and forgot about them till now. Time to check those bad boys out!!!
It does take a longer aging time than some of the juice kits, but you can make some good wine.
