Rack to secondary when the SG is at about 1.010. That's normally about 5-7 days for me.
I'd change up a few things in your timeline/recipe, but you should have plenty of time for that in the future. For example, I wouldn't use sorbate unless I was sweetening the wine- I just don't like the taste of sorbate and don't use it if it's not needed. I also don't rack by a timeline- I rack to secondary based on SG readings, and thereafter rack whenever there are lees 1/4" thick, or any lees at all after 60 days.
