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.
The hue of the medium dark purple McManis Family Vineyards Zinfandel, displays all the attractive qualities of a young wine. Pleasant ripe redcurrants and fresh strawberry immediately come to mind followed by caramelised sugar and toast. The savouriness of bright red fruits are enveloped in the succulent, juicy wine which possesses soft, supple tannins.
