McManis, wine

Ask any homesteader 150 years ago and they would have told you the north forty was the northern quarter of their 160-acre plot of land.

Many acres of grapes are sourced for this red blend that is primarily cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot, with smaller portions of petite sirah, tannat and ruby cabernet.

The wine is initially fermented with the grape skins then moved into stainless steel tanks and exposed to new and used French oak.

This pours a deep color purple with intriguing dark berry and fruit flavors.

Sherry: “Medium-bodied with cherry, raspberry and plum flavors with a raisin-like finish.” (3.25 stars out of 5)

Chris: “A vanilla and raisin bouquet with flavors of cherry and blackberry with light but long tannins.” (3.5 stars out of 5)

Available from $16 to $19.

Coming next week: The Federalist Cabernet Sauvignon
