2010 Howling Good Red

A while back, I mentioned that I kept half of each barrel of the 2010 Lodi Zinfandel and the 2010 Yadkin Valley Syrah for a blend.  The blend (dubbed the 2010 Howling Good Red) ended was initially placed in 6 carboys, ranging between 5 and 6.5 gallon in size.  Today I combined a majority of it into two demijohns in order to make the blend more consistant.  The overall quantity is 34 gallons.   I tasted it today and am quite pleased with it.  It will be about 14.5% alcohol by volume and should be well balanced.  I plan on bottling it in a couple of weeks.  It will make up about 14 cases of wine.
