McManis Family Petite Sirah 2020


Bold, rich and full...

"The 2020 offering of Petite Sirah from McManis Family Vineyards is vivid purple in colour, with aromas of full toned Blackberry and Boysenberry. Caramel and Toffee are evident in the bouquet, as well as a Chocolate oak profile. The wine is substantial, yet has a rich soft cream texture of mocha. Very elegant and full of ripe black fruit flavours of Blackberry and Blueberry. These fruit flavours are savoured in the lingering mouthwatering finish."

"Upfront and instantly appealing with dark fruit richness, cocoa, cedar and warm spice characters, it's powerful and succulent on the palate delivering terrific fruit power combined with velvety texture, finishing persistent and delectable. At its best: now to 2027." 5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2022

"Reminds me of apple and blackberry pie with cloves and cinnamon spice layers. Youthful and refreshing bouquet overall. Even more powerful and fruity on the palate with flavours of dark berries and plums, toasty spices and a luscious sweetness of fruit and barrel. Flavours coat and stick to the palate with a fresh coffee bean quality. Medium acidity with fine moderate level tannins, balanced, well made and ready to drink from 2022 through 2028+."
