The hue of the medium dark purple McManis Family Vineyards Zinfandel, displays all the attractive qualities of a young wine. Pleasant ripe red currants and fresh strawberry immediately come to mind followed by caramelized sugar and toast. The savoriness of bright red fruits are enveloped in the succulent, juicy wine which possesses soft, supple tannins.
In 1990 Ron and his wife Jamie, bought their first vineyard and in 1995 McManis Family Vineyards was formed with the purpose-built winery arriving by the end of the Millennium. Now the McManis family own over 2,600 acres between the Ripen area and Lodi in California’s northern interior region!
Food Pairing: Would be a perfect match for full-flavoured meat dishes such as spare ribs or beef brisket or with tomato-based pasta dishes
Vegetarian friendly but not Vegan.
