The 2016 Titus Family Estate Reserve Cabernet is a beautiful wine that highlights the very best of our Ehlers Lane vineyard.  Like the grapes the vineyard produces, this Cabernet is concentrated and rich with an enticing structure and robustness.  The aromas are reminiscent of dark cherry, boysenberry, toffee, berry pie, coffee, and dark chocolate.  The palate is instantly filled with flavors of blackberry, black currant, rum raisin, and berry compote.  The core of lush fruit leads to a finish rife with cocoa powder, warm spice, milk chocolate and radiant tannins that extend the finish.  Enjoy from 2022-2033 and beyond.

Vinification

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested in the two-week period from September 27th-October 12th of 2016.  The Cabernet Sauvignon comes from Titus Estate on Ehlers Ln which is a rocky hillside vineyard.  After the fruit was received at the winery it was destemmed directly to tank where it was fermented for 14 days.  After fermentation the free run wine was drained from tank and racked to barrel.  This wine was aged in 100% new French Oak barrels for 20 months before being racked to tank for bottling.  This wine was racked quarterly during the first year.
