In 1990 Ron and his wife Jamie, bought their first vineyard and in 1995 McManis Family Vineyards was formed with the purpose-built winery arriving by the end of the Millennium. Now the McManis family own over 2,600 acres between the Ripon area and Lodi in California’s northern interior region.
Dark garnet in colour, the Cabernet Sauvignon from McManis Family Vineyards is full of dark berry fruit, such as blueberry, blackberry and black cherry. Oak aging has contributed just a hint of smoke to the nose. The round, creamy wine delivers an abundance of the fruit flavours promised. The fruit and oak are well-integrated and the complexity of the wine plays on the palate.
