    2E60F878-F40C-4D13-B1E9-CBA5CA4D4ED8.jpeg I’ve made Cab Franc from the vineyard we are getting these grapes 4 out of the last 5 years. This wine is fine and don’t need no oak chips. I would say that @4score is quite brave to experiment on 3,000 pounds of grapes. Perhaps a low risk scenario, but the intent of adding oak chips is to change the taste profile of the wine and I’m happy with the way it is, unchanged.
