Carnation Anapa Winery, vol 4, day 23: racking (cont’d)

I racked the bucket with Petit Verdot and got about 3 gallons. Now it seats half-empty and I need to decide what to do with it: pour into three 1-gallon carboys or top off with similar retail wine or something else.

I also racked the carboy with Malbec and added 5 French oak spheres. But first I soaked them in a bowl of boiled water to kill any germs.
