2019 Merlot

2019 was a fantastic vintage in the cooler regions of Napa, where the Merlot for the Titus wine is grown at Sugarloaf Vineyard.  The wine is popping with red berry notes of pomegranate, raspberry, cranberry and filled out by hints of rum raisin, perfume, and white pepper.  The palate opens with more red fruits and candied cherries while the wine fills the mid palate with creamy richness.  The tannins are silky giving the wine a fine-grained texture throughout and leading to a finish redolent of red plums, graphite, and spices.  Enjoy through 2034.

The 2019 Titus Merlot was harvested on October 12th and 29th 2019.  The Merlot is 100% from two blocks at the Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard in Southern 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 and Hungarian Oak barrels for 20 months before being racked to tank for bottling.  This wine was racked quarterly during the first year.
