I've got a cab Sav from a frozen bucket in the aging/clearing stage. The ph is 3.59 and ta 6.6... Should I adjust? Or leave be. I've tasted it but I'm not used to what it should taste like yet at this stage.... 1st bucket

Thx

Your numbers are well within an acceptable range for Cabernet Sauvignon. It's all up to your taste.

Not knowing the wine, I'd be hesitant to make any adjustments. Just take care of it. Keep sulfited and topped up.

Yup, sounds perfect!

Many of the bucket juices are pre-adjusted prior to purchase. With those readings, I would guess that this is the case.
