Subtle and elegant. Medium, medium plus, and heavy toasted French oak imbue the wine with delicate notes of spice, vanilla, caramel, tea, toffee, and chocolate. The tannin contribution from this blend is rich and powerful, creating a full body with a silky mouth feel. This package is designed for use in a six gallon batch and the whole pack must be used to acheive the intended results.

This oak has a nicer flavor than the other oaks I've tried in my wine._x000D_There is a subtle vanilla flavor and the overall tannins and structure are superior to other oak.
I like this blend of oak. It adds more than just the oak and vanilla flavors. It adds complexity and greater mouth feel. It's well suited to red wines that need to be aged.
I've used American oak before and it has a different taste. This is a nicer grade of oak with better flavor, and better suited for wine making.
I tried the spirals , the American oak, and this blend, and this is my favorite. It could be the tannins are different, or the toasting, but this package has the best flavor.
This oak is very good for adding subtle flavors and aromas to wine. It added vanilla and tea flavors after 4 weeks. The tannins improved the body as well.
