Cabernet Franc might not be the varietal that everyone “shops” for, but I say that those who don’t are wrong! Cabernet Franc (as Merlot) might be a “blending” varietal, but I am a firm believer that Cabernet Franc makes great wine on its own (as it does in Bordeaux – look at Cheval Blanc!) That said, I tasted 1000+ wines this year, some great others so-so and those who read my emails and blog will know that we take it very serious! Out of the 100 Cabernet Francs tasted we had to make the hard decision and elected Titus 2011 Cabernet Franc of the year!

The 2011 Titus Cabernet Franc has a shimmering ruby appearance. The complex nose offers aromas of strawberry, rooibos red tea, black currant jam, elderberry, fresh sliced vanilla bean, chocolate and slight note of spice. The wine is medium-full in body with mouthwatering flavors of pomegranate, blueberry, dark fig, and black tea leaves with just the right touch of acidity. The finish is everlasting with sweet oak spice and coffee.
