2017 Petite Sirah
New and Used French and American Oak
First Bottling August 2018
After fermenting on the skins for 6-9 days, the must was pressed and the resulting wine finished fermentation in Stainless Steel tanks. The resulting wine was then aged on new and used French and American Oak for approximately 6 months.
The 2017 Petite Sirah is deep purple in color, with an exceptionally bright hue. The nose is filled with ripe blackberry, toffee and a bit of clove. Flavors of juicy dark berry fruit are abundant. The round dense wine has a mocha finish which is absent of any astringency.
The blend for our 2017 Petite Sirah is 80% Petite Sirah, 17% Tannat and 3% Teroldego.

I tried this wine last month and one of my favorites. It was purchased at a local Trader Joe's unfortunately no more available. Want to know where I can purchase a dozen of this Petite Sirah 2014. Please email details to me. Thank you, A.M.

Charlene. Yes, the wine is available in Toronto, and most of the range of McManis wines as well! The Vine Agency. Great wine & great price!

I love McManis Pinot Noir, but this Petit Sirah was a very pleasant experience. Very sophisticated, with quite a bit more body and excellent berry flavors. This will always be in my cellar!

How blessed to enjoy such a sumptuous wine and at amazingly low price point. McManis Petite Sirah has been my go-to since discovering it during a ski trip to Breckenridge, Co in 2013. Jammy, rich, bold in a class termed "chewy wines" by a local wine merchant, it is the "house wine" in our home.

The aroma, the taste, the color, all around wonderful experience! A little drier than i normally prefer, but a nice dry. I like that it is bold, and rich, and dark...I'm hooked.

I just had this wine in a restaurant and loved it. It is full-bodied, balanced not too dry and fruity with a very rich finish.

For several years now, this has become my go-to red for everyday enjoyment and has impressed many a dinner guest - even a few true wine snobs! I've entered this Petite Sirah in friendly blind tastings and it has yet to place below 2nd, more than once coming in 1st! I love it and keep it in ample supply. It is a win/win!

I loved it on our trip in Cali, but cannot find to buy it in Europe :-( Do you deliver to Europe?

We love this wine! Best value of all wines. Please keep the OAK in your wines. Oak is what we look for.

Wow! Wife and I love this wine, 2015 Petite Sirah. Pair with a nice creamy blue cheese and crackers. Very juicy and still dry, also with the right amount and type of oak. Great job McManis Family!

Finally discovered McManis wines. Had to drink wine for 30 years before it happened. The 2017 petit sirah is very underrated by WE. Maybe they had just eaten some dill pickles. Is there any 2016 still on the market? Thanks for providing an exceptional product at the price. Hope to get to the winery soon.

Fantastic wine I discovered a few years ago and I have been purchasing it via a wine importer in Canada. Also had a few friends try it and everyone really enjoys it. Keep up the good work Mcmanis.
