Dark purple in color, with a bright hue, the 2007 McManis Family Vineyards Petite Sirah has a dense, jammy Boysenberry aroma, which is accompanied by a creamy vanilla and slightly smoky character. The wine is soft and round on the palate and is full of big, juicy, dark berry fruit flavors. A long fruit finish is accompanied by hints of milk chocolate.
Varietal: Petite Sirah
California produces the majority of wine made in the United States. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel and Pinot Noir dominate the wine production in California, but many other varietials thrive in the California climate. Many fine wines are produced in California using Mediterranean grapes.
