Oak Missing in Red Wine Kit

I’m a long time beer brewer just starting with wine making. I recently started a Cellar Craft Sterling Global Cuvee Barbera
kit. Despite the instructions mentioning oak addition and the description talking about it being “fermented on…untoasted American oak,” there was no oak in the kit. We triple checked all the packets, totally emptied the box, even checked in the juice pack and couldn’t find any.

Am I missing something? I just started the fermentation…should I just add some oak? How much? Any special instructions?

Thanks in advance,

i know the directions are all the same for the select wine kits, thats all i have made. some come with oak or other additaves some dont. i would check and see if that style comes with oak. call NB they have always been very helpful to me.
