2014 Titus Vineyards
The Titus brothers have stopped making their Andronicus Sauvignon which was put together from bought-in grapes. All their efforts now go into this belter made only from their own estate fruit. There is a clear step up here. Still the full-throttle Napa expression of Sauvignon that you would hope for. This is a super, food-friendly Sauvignon and yet surprisingly appetising fruit-led style. Intense, beautifully textured, almost apricoty flesh notes give a bass line to the brighter warm lemon juice piquancy. Fermented in stainless steel after pressing the whole bunches this is unashamedly Napa. The addition of a touch of Viognier gives the sensation of even more texture. The result is a deliciously juicy drinking from this super team in the heart of the Napa valley near Saint Helena. L&S (May 2017)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or buy 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified (as a full pack) 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.
