The offering of Petite Sirah from McManis Family Vineyards is almost black in
The grapes for our 2012Pinot Noir were harvested between September 4-18, 2012, with an average Brix of 24.7. 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.>
The 2012 McManis Family Vineyards Pinot Noir is light purple in color with a lustrous hue. Ripe Strawberry, Cherry and Raspberry aromas are joined by a cream and Vanilla bouquet. Fresh Cherry, Strawberry and Raspberry flavors are perceptible as the round silky wine passes through the mouth. Vanilla undertones, lent to the wine from oak aging, are perceptible in the clean, but supple finish.
