In 1990 Ron and his wife Jamie, bought their first vineyard and in 1995 McManis Family Vineyards was formed with the purpose-built winery arriving by the end of the Millennium. Now the McManis family own over 2,600 acres between the Ripon area and Lodi in California’s northern interior region.
The offering of Petite Sirah from McManis Family Vineyards is almost black in colour but with a vibrant and youthful hue.
The nose has an abundance of ripe black fruits, predominantly blackberry and boysenberry. Oak aging has contributed a pleasing mélange of rich creamy caramel and maple syrup scents, with just a barely perceptible waft of smoke.
The dense viscous liquid delivers all of the flavours one would expect from the aromatics. Savoury and luscious with a pleasantly persistent finish.
Oak Treatment - 100% of this wine has been oaked with French staves.
