Looks awesome and I bet it will make wonderful mulled wine. Maybe it should come with a high-alcohol warning, lol!

My daughter was here from Arizona for my father in laws funeral. One evening I racked the spiced apple juice wine and my daughter was curiously watching me. She asked for a taste I said OK but its not dropped clear yet so it's going to be a little harsh. She said I want to taste it. So I have her a little in a glass. She sniffed it and said it smells like apple pie. Then she took a sip and said yep harsh, then she drunk the rest and said oh my god dad my tongue is numb, are you sure that's wine? I never had wine that strong before. I am still of the opinion it would make a good brandy.

Wife likes "Kickin' Cranberry" as she calls it. Bottling now and figured I needed to back sweeten with sugar. But nope, its good as is and she's right... It does have a bit of a kick. Most definitely a body warmer. This will be real nice to serve at thanksgiving.

28 750ml bottles, plus about 2/3rd which is in the refrigerator. Very good favor, nice color and crystal clear. Cranberry was my most difficult wine yet, I would not recommend to try and make cranberry as your first wine.

i couldn't read my own writing, I thought I wrote 15.2% but after doing the math it's 16.2% ABV. So my wife was right it's some kickin' cranberry alright.
