The grapes for our Merlot were harvested between the end of August and beginning of October. After fermenting on the skins for 6-9 days, the must was pressed and the resulting wine finished fermentation in Stainless Steel tanks. The wine then received the equivalent of approximately 6 months of aging in French Oak barrels.
Youthful bright purple hues highlight the medium ruby color of the McManis Family Vineyards Merlot. Fruit forward with pretty Blackberry aromas surround a bouquet of cream and a hint of baking spices. Juicy and concentrated, the lively mix of black fruit flavors are accompanied by the pleasant addition of a vanilla creamy texture, which has been contributed through oak aging. The wine is succulent and has a pleasing toasty finish.
