I tried looking on the search engine on the forum but I guess I'm having browser issues because I can't click on any of the links that pop up, most of which are a little old. Anyway, does anyone have experience with these? They seem a little pricey on a per pound basis, but for getting fruit at the wrong time of year it seems like a good idea. I was looking specifically at the Blackberry or Marionberry. Frozen berries are fairly expensive as well, so I'd like to hear from anyone that has an opinion either way.
Was thinking about doing something like

5 gal batch

2 Cans Vinter's harvest Blackberry or Marionberry

1/2 96oz. can of Alexander's grape concentrate (Barbera) to add some body, tannins, and additional sugar

Some additional sugar if needed to get around 1.85 SG or so.

Fermenting on an 1oz of Heavy toasted Hungarian oak (to get a mild oak flavor).

uhhh, oops on multiple accounts

yeah the SG would be 1.085, and I noticed I labled the thread Vintner's Reserve instead of Harvest.
