The McManis family has been farming in the northern interior region of California for five generations. In 1990, fourth generation farmer Ron McManis, and his wife Jamie founded the McManis Family Vineyards. Currently, they farm over 4,000 acres of premium wine grapes located within the premier growing areas of the northern interior and Clarksburg Delta regions of California. In 1998, the company designed and built a state-of-the-art winery and today the McManis Family Vineyards label comprises a range of red and white varietals sourced from ten estate vineyards. Son Justin, and daughter Tanya, are the fifth generation of the McManis family and are also involved in the family business.
On the nose, ripe blackberries, fresh boysenberries, and plums with chocolate notes, vanilla and toasty oak. On the palate, more jammy dark fruit and creamy vanilla flavours followed by velvety tannins. Pair with pork dishes, red meat, and/or warm vegetables dishes.
Made from 75% Cabernet Sauvignon with Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot to round out the blend, the majority of the grapes are sourced from Lodi with the remaining coming from vineyards throughout the Valley. Harvested between mid-September and late-October, fermentation lasts 7-9 days then the wine is pressed and finished in stainless steel. Aged for 6 months in new and used American and French oak.
