What the Experts Say: With its medium Ruby hue, the 2018 McManis Family Vineyards Pinot Noir offers Strawberry preserves, fresh cherry mixed with Vanilla and Cream aromatics. Once in the mouth, these flavors are recognizable, in addition to a hint of Blueberry. Round and mouth-watering, the finish of this Pinot Noir is a well-balanced combination of fruit flavors from the grapes and the Vanilla and Cream contributed from the oak aging. The wine is silky on the palate with red fruit and vanilla undertones, culminating in a clean, lasting finish.
What do I think: Great tasting wine, much too big and bold to be Pinot Noir in my mind. More in the line of Merlot and Shiraz to me.
