Description 

William's California Wine Concentrates are made from 100% Central Valley varietal wine grapes, picked at their peak and gently concentrated with minimum heat (never exceeding 180 degrees F.) under vacuum to 68 Brix. Sugar has not been added, nor is sugar needed to make 5 gallons of full-bodied varietal wine.

The 192 ounces of concentrate included in each pack (two 96 oz. cans) is enough to make 5 gallons of wine with an alcohol content of 12 to 13%. Contains sulfiltes, so you do not need to add them before fermentation. Our California Wine Concentrates are also acid balanced, so you do not need to add acid or do an acid titration test (unless you want to).

Pinot Noir is a grape that yields a full-flavored, complex red wine. Matures in one to two years, with a softer, sometimes fruitier character than Cabernet.

Note: This includes concentrate only, and does not include yeast, oak, or other additives that may be needed to ferment 5 gallons of wine. For complete wine kits, see our William's California Wine Kits.

GREAT TASTE AND EXCELLENT BODY
THIS CONCENTRATE AFTER DILUTING TO THE 5 GAL. FERMENTING VOLUME REYAINS ADEEP COLO AND INTENSITY in (body).  ITS FLAVOR IS NOT LOST ONCE THE WINE HAS ACHIEVED BOTTLING STATE.  EVEN AS A YOUNG IT HAS FLAVOR THAT IS PROLONGED AFTER IS COSUMRD.  I HAVE USED THIS VARIETAL TWICE AND HAVE BOTTLES THAT ARE OVER 3 YRS, OLD THEY IMPROVE IN TASTE AND I HAVE NEVER HAD SWDIMENT PROBLEM THAT FAR ALONG.  IT IS AN EXCELLENT PRODUCT.

from holladay, ut
light on the nose, medium bodied
Not much of nose, one month into bottling. Has a medium body, black berries, notes of raspberries, tinge of anise. Not sure about aging potential, I will likely consume within one year of bottling. Good value for price. Pinot noir are hard to grow and harder wines to make. This concentrate performed better that I anticipated.

Pinot Concentrate
Pros: I completed a batch using this concentrate in late Spring 2008. The wine has superb taste and character, the appearance is crystal clear and vibrant red. There was no harsh taste prior to bottling, which is quite uncommon for young Pinot Noir. I would recommend this concentrate over any kit on the market. If you use bentonite, pectin enzyme, wine tannin and fining agents in your winemaking practices, you can bottle this wine in 6-7 weeks and have a great tasting wine in 2-3 months aging time. Additionally, William's Brewing has excellent customer service, who will answer the most complex questions, if you are a meticulous winemaker such as I. 

Cons: None

Pino Noir
Pros: I have made this wine in 2004. It came out fantastic. Full bodied, great bouquet, and a smooth finish. I won't be a snob, so I will sum this up with easy to understand terms. If you have ever tasted a bottle of $20.00 Pinot Noir and thought it was great, try making this one, it's better.
