The grapes for our 2014 Pinot Noir were harvested between August 26th and September 7th, 2014, with an average Brix of 24.5. 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 2014 McManis Family Vineyards Pinot Noir is light purple in color with a lustrous hue. 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. Ripe Strawberry, Cherry and Raspberry aromas are joined by a cream and Vanilla bouquet.

I have tried wines at twice the price and have been unimpressed. I must consider value, and this is simply outstanding. THe higher priced, boutique Pinot Noirs are simply not worth the expense.
