The McManis Family Vineyards Zinfandel is a dark purple wine, loaded with notes of ripe red currant, strawberry, caramelized sugar, and toasty oak. The savory red fruit on the palate leads to soft, supple tannins and a smooth finish.
Harvest and Production Notes:
All of the fruit for our Zinfandel is cultivated on our estate vineyards in Lodi.
The grapes for our Zinfandel were harvested in September, with an average Brix of 25.3. After 7-9 days of fermentation in stainless steel tanks on the skins, the must was pressed and the wine finished. The wine was then aged, on average, for 4-6 months with a combination of new and used French and American Oak.
