(From 2010 Vintage) The 2010 offering of Petite Sirah from McManis Family Vineyards is vivid purple in color, with aromas of full toned Boysenberry, Cassis and Blackberry. Hazelnut and Toffee are evident in the bouquet. The wine is substantial, elegant and full of ripe black fruit flavors. These fruit flavors are savoured in the mouthwatering finish, long after the wine has departed.

Wine & Spirits(From 2008 Vintage) Shows the dry astringency, sharp acidity and bitterness of a fine, young Petite Sirah, with currant and pepper flavors accented with smoky oak. Doesnrsquo;t seem likely to develop, so drink now with hearty fare, like pasta with sausages.
Wine & Spirits(From 2007 Vintage) Rating: 83/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 04/09. A black wine, this is Porty and sweet, soft enough for braised beef.
