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.

Tasting Notes

On the nose, aromas of blackberry and blueberry are joined by notes of vanilla, hazelnut, and milk chocolate. On the palate, those aromas come through with added vanilla notes; soft and round. Pair with pork dishes, a variety of red meat cuts/preparations, and/or warm vegetables dishes.

Method

Made from a blend of predominantly Merlot with some added Petit Verdot, Teroldego, and Petite Sirah, over 85% of the grapes are sourced from vineyards in Lodi with the rest coming from plots in the Valley. Harvested between mid-August and late-September, fermentation lasts 6-9 days on the skins, the wine is then pressed and finished in stainless steel. Aged in new and used French oak for 6 months prior to bottling and release.
