Cranberry Wine Update - First Rack

We were a few days later then planned, but the cranberry wine finally had it's first rack.  We carefully siphoned it from the two one-gallon carboys, there was about 1-1/2 inch of sediment in the bottom of each of them.

Otherwise the wine is beautifully clear, and a gorgeous color.  Taste test revealed a very dry wine - it's obviously eaten all the sugar I gave it, so I added 3 more cups and it will sit again until the first week of March.
 Bottled up again!
