[quote=“harpdog”]It’s fun to consider making a few different levels of quality. I sort of like the idea of disciplining myself while something ages, but I think I will research some of those that are meant to be consumed “young”.
I am in no way a wine gourmet, I just know that some commercial wines I like, and some I don’t.
I am expecting that most of the middle shelf to upper shelf kits will be very nice.
Thanks for the replies! I will re-read the directions about aging. (And I’m SURE I’ll open at least one early!)[/quote]
As far as I know Winex would not include aging direction in their kits. They do however have a chart of recommendations in their brochures. Since their kit redesigns all the wines will show better young, but the range is still very similar.
There is some variation with specific varietals, but the basic aging concept has been this:
Whites - 1 month min / consume within 1 years
Reds - 2/3 month min / consume within 2 years
Whites - 2-3 months min / within 2 years
Reds - 6 months min / within 3-4 years
Whites - 2-3 months / within 2-3 years
Reds - 6-8 month min / within 5+
