McManis California Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from USA
Review Date : 09-Oct-2017
Dark, moderately deep ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is firm with a fine concentration of ripe red cherry and raspberry liqueur aromas, entwined with bright red florals and a layering of nutty and spicy oak. Medium-full bodied, the palate has rich and sweet flavours of bright, ripe red cherry and raspberry fruit with an amalgam of red florals, dark herbs and nutty, spicy oak. The flavours show depth and form a well-packed core with supple tannin textures and balanced acidity. The wine is mouthfilling and carries easily to flavoursome finish of raspberries and spices. This is a flavoursome and rich cherry and raspberry-fruited Pinot Noir with a layering of spicy oak on a balanced palate with good structure and grip. Match with duck and pork dishes over the next 4 years. California fruit fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged approx. 6 months in new and seasoned French and American oak barrels. 17.5-/20 Oct 2017 RRP $25.00
