Wine Profile
Production Notes
The grapes for our 2016 Merlot were harvested between Oct.1 - 4, 2016, with an average Brix of 26.8. 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 was then aged on a combination of new and used French and American Oak for 6 months.
Winemaker Notes
Youthful bright purple hues highlight the medium ruby color of the 2016 McManis Family Vineyards Merlot. Fruit forward with pretty Blackberry aromas surround a bouquet of cream and a hint of baking spices. Juicy and concentrated, the lively mix of black fruit flavors are accompanied by the pleasant addition of a vanilla creamy texture, which has been contributed through oak aging. The wine is succulent and has a pleasing toasty finish.
