The wine has beautiful aromas of strawberry soda, red licorice, five spice, and molasses. The flavors remind the senses of candied cherry, autumn spice, cracked pepper, and horehound. This Zinfandel has a refreshing mouthfeel that makes it an excellent wine for enjoying anytime, or with your favorite grilled meats. The wine exemplifies the concentration and grace of our old Zinfandel vines, which were planted in 1977. Enjoy this wine upon release through 2030 and beyond.
2015 ZINFANDEL NAPA VALLEY 1.5L Magnum
One of Napa Valley's true Heritage grapes, and a Titus Family favorite! Produced from 40 year old vines planted by the brothers themselves, Zinfandel is a tradition here at Titus Vineyards - one we are willing to share.
Visually this wine is as impactful as the flavor profile, with a gorgeously opaque royal purple core giving way to a clear ruby red rim. Toasted oats and brown sugar notes curl around juicy cranberry-raspberry on the nose, reminiscent of a crisp just out of the oven, followed by balsamic strawberry reduction, faint rose petal and just a hint of the saddle. On the palate toast, oak and macerated strawberry are crowned by a high, bright ribbon of caramel, and robed in red delicious apples and watermelon candy. It is long and lean on the palate, with medium body and an everlasting finish showing considerable ageability in the tannins.
