I started a Cru Select kit today, a limited edition, Argentinean Tannat Merlot. It seems like a nice kit (and I bought it on sale from Austinhomebrew and had free shipping!) but I have to say the instructions are lacking. They are general kit instructions, but the oak package is unmarked and the grape skins are inexplicibly under the juice at the very bottom of the packet. There are also two oak spirals, with no explanation. I googled this kit, and found better instructions on a winemaking site.
Anyway, I forgot to take pictures but I thought I'd update this thread at each step, along with some notes.
The yeast included was Lavlin EC-1118, and the OG was 1.110.
