2016 Andronicus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1405570

Brothers Eric and Phillip Titus run this family winery at the base of Howell Mountain, in the St. Helena AVA. The wines of their main label, Titus Vineyards, have won an excellent reputation over the years, particularly the Bordeaux-style blends. Eric and Phillip believe that blends often offer a more “complete” wine than a single varietal can. Their home vineyards are largely planted to Cabernet, but they maintain this philosophy by cultivating many of the other traditional Bordeaux varietals as well. With the success of the Titus label, the brothers decided to launch Andronicus, a label devoted exclusively to the blend concept. In 2016 the growing season was nearly perfect in Napa, and they made the decision to use a higher percentage of Cabernet from their home vineyards in this blend. This wine is 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and also incorporates Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Merlot. After 22 months in barrel, the wine is smooth, rounded, and well integrated. The barrel aging also adds a very light mocha spice note, which beautifully contrasts with the cool blackberry and cassis fruit that dominates the palate of this wine. A great deal for a classic Napa red!
