Production Notes
90% of the fruit for our 2017 Zinfandel came from Lodi. The remainder came from sustainable vineyards within the Valley. The grapes for our 2017 Lodi Zinfandel were harvested between August 24 - September 3rd, with an average Brix of 25.3. After 7-9 days of stainless steel fermentation on the skins, the must was pressed and the wine finished fermentation. The wine was then aged, on average, for 4-6 months with a combination of new and used, French and American oak.
Winemaker Notes
The 2017 McManis Family Vineyards Zinfandel is a dark purple wine, loaded with notes of ripe red currant, strawberry, caramelized sugar, and toasty oak. The savory red fruit on the palate leads to soft, supple tannins and a smooth finish.
Production
Our blend is predominantly Zinfandel with about 11% Petite Sirah and 9% Tannat added in for texture & color.

We wish BP Amoco had more of it. We’re Ravenswood Zin fans but this matches up!
