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.
