2013 McManis “North Forty Red” (Petit Verdot / Tannat / Zinfandel Blend)
The 2013 North Forty Red is 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. 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.

Spent 16 months in French oak. It exhibits the vintage’s attractive notes of spice box, generous fruit, outstanding ripeness, and fine purity. This is a delicious “textbook” Cabernet Sauvignon that should well young and age effortlessly for 15 or more years. 90 pts Robert Parker
