McManis North Forty Red 2013

This wine is a blend of Petite Verdot and Tannat!  This wine is a highly pigmented purple in hue with a depth of color, which makes it appear almost black.  Aromatically the wine displays substantial dark berry fruit, accompanied by mocha, and a modicum of vanilla.  (I thought this was very noticible – in a good way!) The wine is creamy and dense.  Flavors of black raspberry and blackberry are commingled with dark chocolate which is contributed from aging on French Oak.  While the blend has significant tannins, it is mouthwatering.

A really special wine – limited case production.  $23.99
