McManis Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Ranked the #8 Red Wine in our February 9, 2019 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event.
Dark garnet in color with a bouquet that is full of dark berry fruit, such as Blueberry, Blackberry and Black Cherry. Oak aging has contributed just a hint of smoke to the nose. The round, creamy wine delivers an abundance of the fruit flavors promised by the olfactory. The fruit and oak are well integrated and the complexity of the wine plays on the tongue long after the wine has been ingested.
This medium-bodied wine is earthy but still delivers the fruit flavors. The nose has some new leather, barnyard and new oak tones, while the flavors evoke boysenberries and grape jam.
