Since the second carboy with Cabernet Sauvignon was lacking some volume to do proper anaerobic fermentation I needed to top it up. But unfortunately I couldn’t find any juice that’d match (grape, location, year) mine so I decided to add already finished wine.
I purchased 4 bottles of 2016 Nine Hats Cabernet Sauvignon made on Prosser, WA what’s close enough to Zillah, WA. But it turned out to be not enough, I need about 2 more, and I cannot find anymore around as apparently I bought out all local stock.
But actually I should’ve bought 1 or 2 magnums. I would save considerable amount of money and would add something more closely matching my wine by year.
