2017 Cabernet Sauvignon 3L
The 2017 Titus Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our Titus Ranch Estate Vineyard and displays the plushness of fruit and tannin that comes from the sandy alluvial soils at our St Helena vineyard. The wine pops out of the glass with dried cherry, plum, cigar box and ground coffee aromas. The palate is rich with concentrated pomegranate, French plum, mocha, fresh herbs and spice that holds through the round mid-palate. The fine-grained tannins and fresh acid deliver a bright fresh body that finishes with long notes of dark chocolate, baking spices and currant. Enjoy through 2032.
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested in the two week period from September 26th-October 9th of 2017. After picking the fruit was gently destemmed and then pumped to tank. It was fermented on the skins from 10-14 days and then drained at the completion of alcoholic fermentation. After draining it was racked to 60% new French and Hungarian Oak barrels for ageing. It was then racked quarterly for the first year before being racked to tank in May 2019 for bottling. The Cabernet Sauvignon in the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is primarily from the Titus Ranch Estate. This wine shows off the depth of flavor and lushess of tannins that this site produces year after year.
