Default Winebuddy Cabernet Sav'

Picked up a couple of 6 bottle kits for £2.50 each, although reviews seem to be all of the merlot, anyone tried these? Is it worth adding a litre of lidl grape juice juice to each? Had a couple of Sav' Blanc as well have tried been ok, one wasn't with irony taste.

Any opinions on Cab' Sav 6 bottle kits?

Hi! Haven't tried the Cab Sav, but the Merlot kit produces a drinkable wine - my missus has had commercial wine in pubs that she has considered inferior to the Winebuddy kit wine. I've made the Sauvignon Blanc and the Chardonnay - both decent quaffing wines that slip down quite nicely.
Yes, by all means add a litre of red grape juice. I always "juice up" the Winebuddy kits.
