Description: The McManis family has been farming in the northern interior region of California since 1938. Fourth generation farmer Ron McManis and his wife Jamie founded McManis Family Vineyards in 1990. From the beginning, their mission was simple: every bottle of McManis Family Vineyards should consist of “quality wine at an honest price”. They now farm over 3,600 acres of premium wine grapes from premier growing areas in California. The Petite Sirah is full-bodied with a deep purple color. A delicious wine from front to back, leading with aromas and flavors of chocolate, caramel, toffee, and rich black fruit. The mid-palate is driven by mocha notes that carry through to the long, luxurious finish.
Food pairing: Barbecue, red meats (grilled, braised), Mexican cuisine, rich sauces, hamburgers, oxtails, stew chicken, etc.
