Merlot/Strawberry Updates

Just a quick post to show some updates on the newly bottled Merlot and the newly racked Strawberry Wine. Enjoy!

These are my many many bottles of the Vintner's Reserve Merlot after filling the bottles.
And here they are after being corked!
More Merlot.
This is the strawberry wine before I racked it to a 5 gallon carboy. Notice the bulk lees compacted at the bottom. That's all macerated strawberries and dead yeast!
And here's the strawberry after racking. Strangely enough, it's much much lighter in a glass!
