We did 8 lbs of frozen Cabernet Sauvignon in about 4-4.5 gallons on wine barrel aged lambic-ish sour. After four months it was beautiful. Great fresh berry (raspberry especially) in the nose, lovely pink-purple color. Took first in the first round of the NHCs this year.


Did you enter as a fruit lambic?

Yep, despite botlting less than a year ago Iím down to my last two bottles (luckily one is a magnum).
