I love the commercial wine Bodacious Smooth Red. I just had the local wine store make me Diablo Rojo and they left the oak out because Bodacious is not oaked, but it is not very good i am just wondering if it was a mistake to leave the oak. (i'm not trying to blame the store) just looking for feedback and wondering if i should do it again with the oak.

The kit I made had several packets of different oaks IIRC, the oak would add a lot to the overall character of the wine.

Yes this one I have to review my processneeds oak tannin's and oak chips, the next time it's getting reduced to a 5.5 gallon batch.
