Wine noob here...I've made apfelwein and rhubarb with ec1118 and banana with D47, now I'm trying Terry gerry's Cranberry but this is by far the highest gravity I've encountered.
1.122???
3#cranberries
3#sugar
~1# chopped golden raisins
Holy cow!
I pitched Montrachet and only found out afterwards that it typically doesn't like that much sugar.

Anybody have any experience to share? Will it be alright?

It should do something. A gentle swirl twice per day for the first few days might help force out some CO2 and help out the brew. I'm actually surprised that the OG wasn't higher. Typically Table sugar is rated as having 45 ppg so I would have expected an OG of 1.135 just on that alone (Assuming 1 gallon batch).
