2013 Cabernet Franc Titus Vineyards
|Grapes||Malbec, Merlot, Cab Franc, Cab Sauv|
This delicious Cabernet Franc offers aromas of red fruits – think cherry, red currants and strawberry jam - with hints of mocha and clovey oak. The aromas carry through to the palate, in addition to blueberry, cinnamon baking spice and a touch of dried herbs. This wine is juicy with a rich mouth feel where sweet oak and balanced acidity bring it all together, enhancing the long finish. Drink now, or cellar it for up to a decade. Drinking range: 2016 - 2026 Winemaker's notes (Nov 2016)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Titus vineyards is a small property with vineyards in two distinct areas of the Napa valley, mostly around their sparkling new winery on the Silverado trail, just west of St Helena. After much faffing about the right time and place to build their own winery, they finally decided to grub up some vines in a less productive corner of one of their vineyards. Here they have built the most beautiful and perfectly efficient, state of the art winery. They cut the ribbon just in time to do their first crush in September 2015 and we look forward to seeing the fruits of their labours very soon. Until now the team have used a nearby 'custom-crush' facility to put the Titus wines together, so things are looking up here and these are exciting times for the estate Titus is run by Eric and Philip Titus who took over the project from their father. Eric is in charge of the viticulture and Philip, who makes the wine at nearby Chappelet helps Titus' head-winemaker Stephen Cruzan with the vinification. The Titus wines form the core of the range, but their little brother 'Andronicus' is a fabulous addition, offering a taste of Napa at a great price. These are all beautifully made wines and after 15 years of working together we love how they offer drinkers top Napa Valley quality and style - without the often eye-watering price levels.
