2017 Merlot

The 2017 Titus Merlot is another stunning bottling from the block we purchase at the Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard.  The aromas are generous with a beautiful bouquet of ripe strawberry, berry pie, toasted pie crust, dried cranberry, and potpourri.  As the wine glides through the palate it is open and rich with flavors of plum, dark cherry, Oolong tea, and spice.  Gentle tannins frame a smooth and round palate that has fresh acid and lingering notes of anise and hibiscus.  Enjoy through 2030.
