2021 Cabernet Sauvignon
Estate Grown, Produced and Bottled by McManis Family Vineyards - 100% Certified Sustainable!
American and French Oak
First Bottling September 2022
98% of the fruit for our 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon came from Lodi, with the remainder from sustainable vineyards within the Valley. We harvested during September with an average Brix of 25.8. After 7-9 days of fermentation on the skins, the resulting wine was pressed and finished fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then aged on new and used French Oak for 6 months. Our 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 75% Cabernet with 10% Petite Sirah, 10% Petit Verdot and 5% Teroldego adding luscious texture, body and color.
Dark garnet in color with a bouquet full of blueberry, blackberry and black cherry notes and a hint of smoke. Medium-bodied on the palate with juicy black currant and black cherry flavors, it finishes with rounded, creamy tannins and a hint of mocha.
