2017 Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc is one of our favorite varieties at Titus Vineyards and the 2017 is shows off why we love it so much. The wine is fragrant and perfumed with notes of cherry, oolong tea, white pepper, sage flower, fall spices and hibiscus.  Silky smooth on entry with a drinkable approach this medium bodied wine glides across the palate with integrated tannins that highlight flavors of cranberry, red plum, rose hip and cardamom.  As the wine lengthens the finish extends with orange zest and Mexican chocolate.  Enjoy through 2029.

Vinification

After the fruit was received at the winery, it was destemmed directly to a tank where it was fermented for 14 days.  After fermentation, the free run wine was drained from the tank and racked to barrel. This wine was racked quarterly during the first year.
