A delicious Californian Zinfandel that's also exceptionally well-balanced. Juicy, robust Californian Zinfandel, bursting with mouth-watering aromas of purple plums and fleshy blackberries. Perfect for grilled steak.

Zinfandel food pairings: chicken wings, spaghetti Bolognese, grilled lamb loin, grilled duck breast.

Delightful Duck Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

An expressive Zinfandel with aromas of strawberries, red licorice, and vanilla bean. On the palate, thee is ripe juicy raspberry flavours with hints of espresso and black pepper at the finish. The tannins are present but have a velvety texture and we well integrated with the acidity.

Tasted November 2017
Mcmanis (2016) is a great value Californian Zinfandel under $20. This Zin is fairly bursting at the seams with mouth watering ripe dark plums and red berry fruit. Pair with gourmet burgers . - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
