Winemaker Notes - The 2009 McManis Family Vineyards Zinfandel has a bright hue and is deep purple in color. The scent of Black Raspberry and Strawberry proliferate in the nose. Background notes of carmalized sugar and vanilla are also present. Rich, soft and creamy, in the mouth, the fruit sensation promised by the nose is delivered upon in the mouth. Berry flavors and hints of vanilla linger long after the wine is swallowed.
