Location: New York, NY

Value Pinots 11/2012

13. Mcmanis Family Vineyards Pinot Noir San Joaquin County (2011)

« Prev Next » 13 of 24
Lightly aromatic with some stewed cherry and strawberry notes dusted with light wood spice and a hint of white pepper. This turns a bit meaty with age showing decent aromatic complexity. Smooth on entry, this is on the light side of medium bodied with a pretty attractive texture. There's a bit of wood tannin to lose but this should develop more of a silky feel to it and it does deliver herb wrapped wild blueberry and strawberry fruit on the palate with well measured oak notes. The finish is a bit short but bright, juicy and red fruited. A fair amount of Pinosity here. 86pts

I see many of them in my local stores and just can not conclude from the labels what I am suppose to expect from each individual wine. Your analysis has been helpful in guiding me to what I would like.
