Customer Reviews"nice addition" Review by Steve (Posted on 1/5/15)
I made the Trinity Red which come with oak. I added 1 Tbs. per gallon to enhance flavor. It is smooth and just the right amount."Smooths out the wine" Review by P&K (Posted on 1/20/14)
I have been using about 1/2 teaspoon per bottle along with 1/2 teaspoon of glycerin. The oak extractive smooths out the wine without adding much oak flavor to the wine. It also takes out the vegetal flavors in the wine. Next year I plan to blend into the wine before bottling."Very faint taste" Review by Rob (Posted on 10/28/12)
Don't get me wrong this does add a hint of oak flavor, but at the maximum dose it could use a little more, but of this of course is going to vary from person to person. It does help to mellow your young wines.
