Mcmanis Family Vineyards Petite Sirah

Wine Details

Wine Description

(2007 Vintage) "Dark purple in color, with a bright hue, the 2007 McManis Family Vineyards Petite Sirah has a dense, jammy Boysenberry aroma, which is accompanied by a creamy vanilla and slightly smoky character. The wine is soft and round on the palate and is full of big, juicy, dark berry fruit flavors. A long fruit finish is accompanied by hints of milk chocolate." -Winery

(2007 Vintage) Wine Tasting Notes The Petite Sirah is deep purple in color with a bright hue. Ripe blackberry aromas mingle with toffee and clove. Succulent dark fruit flavors are copious in this full-bodied wine. The long mocha finish is absent of any astringency that you might expect to find in such a big dark wine.
