CONTEXT: What Happens If You Distill Red Wine?

This experiment used a water distiller which did not, unlike a spirits still, separate the ethanol from the water.

Interestingly, most of the flavour and colour compounds are less volatile and remained in the distiller. How would “reconstituted concentrated wine” fare in a blind wine tasting?
