2018 Cabernet Franc

The 2018 Titus Cabernet Franc is a wine filled with the elegance and grace that is indicative of the variety.  Aromas of allspice, caraway, cranberry, strawberry jam, and violets lift out of the glass.  The smooth entry is filled with notes of dark cherry, pomegranate, cinnamon, and baking spices as the wine glides across the palate.  Mouth filling and smooth though the finish the tannins are finely developed with a light touch that leaves the wine lingering with toasty spices and anise.  Enjoy through 2030.

The 2018 Titus Cabernet Franc was harvested on September 27th from the Titus Ranch Esate and on October 24th 2018 from the Sugarloaf Mtn Vineyard.  The Cabernet Franc is a combination from the Titus Estate Vineyard and Sugarloaf Mtn vineyard in South Napa.  The combination of slightly cooler climate Cabernet Franc from Sugarloaf and the Titus Cabernet Franc makes for an exciting blend of Cab Franc characters.  This wine combines the power of St Helena and the grace and floral notes of the cooler climes of South Napa.  After the fruit was recieved 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 55% new French Oak for 20 months before being racked to tank for bottling.  This wine was racked quarterly during the first year.
