I love trying new wines, and on the recommendation of a fellow wine snob friend of mine (and by the way, wine snob is a compliment!), I tried the McManis Zinfandel tonight. Now normally a California Zinfandel is soft for me, I really like a full-bodied wine with lots of bold taste. But I was very impressed. It has a rich dark color, and has the raspberry, blackberry and blueberry aromas. Aged in French and American oak, this is a great wine to go with any meal or to drink by itself.
I am really looking forward to trying the Cabernet Sauvignon. I am a big Cab Sav fan and the 2007 harvest took place from later September to early October, which means a great tasting wine.
