Default ?? Fermentation stopped??

I'm making a pomegranate-cherry wine, that has been fermenting beautifully...until today. All of a sudden it tastes like really sweet pomegranate juice instead of wine.

I juiced 120 pomegranates, all by myself, and I don't want to lose my wine. What could be wrong?

Also, it would be helpful to know your recipe..... Yeast, sugar, water, ect.

At this point, add yeast nutrient and stir it in, see if that gets it going in a couple of days.

No gravity readings?? May have been too high to start. If so it may be a done deal. Mike
