The Jamie Lynn Vineyard is our small "home" vineyard located on both sides of the entrance to the winery. Less than 3 acres it is planted entirely to Jamie's favorite varietal - Barbera.
The grapes for the 2014 Jamie Lynn Vineyard Barbera were harvested on August 13th at 24.2 degrees brix. All of the must was fermented for 7-9 days on the skin, pressed and the resulting wine finished fermentation in stainless steel tanks. After clarification, the wine was aged on French and American oak for approximately 6 months.
The 2014 Jamie Lynn Vineyard Barbera from McManis Family Vineyards is bright, focused with Red Raspberry as the predominant fruit and medium ruby in color. . However, black fruit and Cherry are also found. There is also faint clove contributed from oak aging. The wine is medium bodied, with soft medium tannins. The acidity of the wine amplifies the fruit flavors, and a nice hint of Mocha lingers long after the wine has been swallowed.
