Mcmanis Family Vineyards Pinot Noir San Joaquin County 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

the year is 2008 . Rating 85. This wine has plenty of acid. Too much for my taste. otherwise good balance. Nose is nice but not too complex. Ok for the price

Like all mcmanis wines, this one is very good. It's hard to find good pinot noir in this price range, and this is a good buy
