Mcmanis Family Vineyards Merlot California 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 McManis Family Vineyards Merlot is deep purple in color and is filled with pleasant scents of Strawberry preserve and fresh cherry. Subtle notes of vanilla and caramel are contributed from the wines' time on oak. The bold yet round wine achieves a superb balance of fruit and oak flavors. The caramel notes promised by the olfactory loiter well after the last of the wine is gone. Alcohol 13.5%.

Youthful bright purple hues highlight the medium ruby color of the McManis Family Vineyards Merlot. Magnanimous Red Currant, and Raspberry are intertwined with whispers of dark berry pie filling. Juicy and concentrated, the lively mix of fruit flavors are accompanied by the pleasant addition of Milk Chocolate, which has been contributed through oak aging. The wine is succulent and has a pleasing toasty finish.
