2013 Titus Andronicus Red Blend- A berry basket of aromas immediately greet your nose with enticing aromas of ripe blueberries, blackberry cobbler, chocolate covered strawberries, raspberries and vanilla. On the palate, dark cherry, cassis and tart plum intertwine, setting the stage for wonderful acidity and well integrated oak. Another wildly delicious vintage of Andronicus, the 2013 is lush, lively and quaffable.” Winery Notes

- Vineyard Our family vineyard, located on the valley floor just north of St. Helena on the Silverado Trail, possesses well-drained, sandy, alluvial soils and is characterized by its ability to produce complex wines with well-defined fruit flavors, gentle acids and naturally balanced tannins. The Cabernet Sauvignon vines vary in age. They were most recently planted between the years 1996 to 2001 and are a combination of the 337 and See clones. Further north, our Ehlers Lane Vineyard consists of a stony, dry streambed and a knoll composed of thin gravelly soil over hard volcanic ash. Planted entirely to Cabernet Sauvignon these infertile soils produce low yields of grapes with concentrated flavors.

- Having grown up in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, brothers Eric & Phillip Titus have ties to farmers growing grapes on some of the best vineyard sites available. Although the core of the Andronicus blends stem from the Titus Vineyards estates, by sourcing from friends the Titus brothers are able to deliver wines that are as deep and as rich as the family values and history they sprang from.

91pts Allvino by The Little Wine Guy, Dan Ceresia- I have been a long time fan of wines produced by these amazing brothers. On one side you have a brother who does the farming and on the other side you have the other brother who has been acclaimed for making one of the best wines from Napa. They always produce an amazing expressive and humble red blend that holds a bit of earth, soft tannins and a big cherry finish. Follow up this fruit finish with 20 month of aging and you have seasoned fruit that holds notes of vanilla and cedar hidden in what ends in a clean savory finish.
