Production Notes
The grapes for our 2016 Petit Verdot were harvested between Sept. 21, 2016, with an average Brix of 26.0. After 7-9 days of stainless steel fermentation on the skins, the must was pressed and the wine finished fermentation. The wine was then aged, on average, for 4-6 months with a combination of new and used, French and American Oak.
Winemaker Notes
The 2016 McManis Family Vineyards Petit Verdot is deep eggplant in color. Aromatically, the wine is full of Blackberry, with some Blueberry. Additional notes of mocha and a faint smokiness are contributed from oak aging. The wine is dense and full of dark berry fruit flavors, with a creamy supple mouth feel. Flavors of fresh berries and mocha linger in the finish.

If Wine Spectator rates the Petit Syrah a 97 then the Petit Verdot should be at least a 96. If I had to do a blind taste test between the two I'm not sure if I could tell the difference. Do yourself a favor and get this wine in your cup today! I'd say that maybe this product has more of an alcohol taste to it, but that is it. It has all the amazing California fruit flavor with a wonderfully deep, chocolate note. So it definitely has the red fruit along with the black. Slightly chilled in the frig for about 20 minutes to get it to cave room temperature, is absolutely the best. Enjoy with a lovely steak and blue cheese for a lovely compliment. Just go get some! You won't be mad.
