It looks nice. Have you sampled a bit of it yet?
Oh, by the way, once you've spent $500, you can no longer call it a hobby; it's officially an obsession.

Very pretty wine! As Lon said, how does it taste?
Did you filter it? It's a very young wine. I usually don't bottle for at least 6 months and most of the time it's 9 to 12 months. If it started 2 months ago and unless you filtered it's going to have sediment in the bottles. Sediment probably won't harm the wine, it'll just make the last glass look a little messy. Pour the first 3 for friends and the last is your glass!
The good news about the cost of getting set up making wine is a lot of those expenses are one time and are used over and over again. But there's always more you can spend money on, if that's part of the enjoyment!
On another note, I recently read that Northern Idaho was one of the best wine grape growing areas in America before Prohibition destroyed the industry. You should be able to grow some great grapes!
Have a good one!
