The McManis family has been farming in California’s northern interior for four generations. In 1990, fourth generation farmer Ron McManis and his wife Jamie founded the McManis Family Vineyards and today they farm over 2,600 acres of wine grapes. They produce a range of white and red wines from grapes sourced from ten estate vineyards. Though the production levels are high, wine quality has never been compromised. McManis is known and loved for their big bold and intensely fruity wines.
Very ripe cherries, stewed strawberries and vanilla on the nose. The ripe berry fruit comes across on the soft, slightly sweet and round palate along with light vanilla notes on the finish.
Over 90% of the fruit comes from Lodi. The remainder came from McManis’ own River Junction AVA, as well as other sustainable vineyards throughout the northern interior of the Valley. Fermentation 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 and American Oak barrels. The blend is predominantly Pinot Noir with a small amount of Petite Sirah added in for texture and color
