  • Mcmanis Family Vineyards Merlot 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Herbal and lightly fresh aromas of poppy seed, basil, black pepper and cherry. Bright and cheerful and full of ripe cherry syrup, cream, raspberry preserves, licorice and cinnamon. The finish is lengthy and powerful, giving you a good reason to remember to take another sip. A nice and simple wine, no frills but a crowd pleaser. Read More

  • Mcmanis Family Vineyards Syrah California 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Light aromas of blackberry and cassis, with a floral hint and a bit of cream. A medium bodied and flavorful wine, full of cherry and candied plum. Simple but well made and pleasant, full of California sun, bright fruit and soft tannins. Read More

  • Mcmanis Family Vineyards Zinfandel 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Light powdered sugar aromas of cherry, violets and strawberry. Big bold and ripe flavors of cherry, cranberry and baking spices. Tart and fresh, this is a great sipper that is easy drinking and easy on the wallet. It has the bold acidity and flavor of a zinfandel without being overly powerful. Read More

  • Mcmanis Family Vineyards Syrah 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A bit candied on the nose though with attractive animal animal, mint, and stemmy herb framing notes around a core of oak covered black fruit. Soft and broad on the palate, this has a tinge of sweetness to it, but retains attractive freshness in the mouth and rather classic black pepper tinged and espresso laced black cherry/berry flavors. Fini... Read More

  • Mcmanis Family Vineyards Syrah 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Blatantly oak and peppery on the nose, this smells rather odd with lots of cedary, resiny wood and harsh peppery spice. Rounded in the mouth, this enters with some hard acids and soft tannins lending this a rather raw feel. The fruit, raspberry and lightly plummy on the plate, is framed by gently creamy and distinctly vanilla laced oak. Theres s... Read More

  • Mcmanis Petite Sirah California 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Dark. Jammy, smoky, spicy. Just a little oak. Very nice. One of my favorite petite sirahs. I enjoy drinking a glass of this wine on its own--food not necessary. I have never tried a McMannis Petite that I did not like. Very distinctive sirah out of Ripon, CA. Read More
