I guess next, you'll have to plant a vineyard. I mean, what good is a hobby if it doesn't become obsessive (or is that excessive)?
Pics and vids are coming.... Free samples too but you have to drop by the Casinha Vermelha to get them.

What level filter did you use on your reds? I have never filtered reds. My syrah typically throws deposits on the sides of the bottle. I haven't seen that on unfiltered Merlot, Cab or Zinfandel.

Congrats Paul! You must feel like a great journey is done. I love bottling, its great to have a finished product. Now, not to be a wet blanket or anything, but prepare yourself for some bottle shock. Your wine will likely "dumb down" in 1-2 weeks and may stay that way for 6 months. You have very sophisticated bottling equipment so it may be minimized. But I've never heard any to claim they eliminate it altogether. I only say it because I wouldn't want you to feel disappointed when it comes along. Its hardest to explain to friends who will be enthused and want to try immediately. I usually suggest 6 months to people to allow the wine to return to its former glory.
