According to Eric E. Titus, vineyard manager, this is their first release of Andronicus. As a side note Titus Andronicus is supposed to be Shakespear’s earliest tragedy and is a tale of bloody revenge. As a side side note, I have not read it, and there is a 92% chance that I never will, although I think having just blogged about it maybe that chance is now 80%. In fact it will probably gnaw at me for the rest of my life, so i better put it on my big huge to do list. Actually I need to put “create big huge to do list” on my regular to do list…aah maybe later.
Okay, where was I? Thats how this wine is. Nice segeway eh? Yes I would say that. Multiple layers of blueberry and blackberry created an interesting effect in that each time I took a sip, it tasted different. That might be because of the make up. 77% Cabernet, 9% Malbec, 6% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, and 3% Cab Franc. The only thing missing to hit for the cylce would be some Carmenere. Thats a baseball reference for all you hockey fans. But it’s just fine without it. I really liked this wine. It’s ready to drink now. There were no tasting notes to compare my notes with, and there is also no information on their website so I dont know how much it costs or how much they made, or anything other than the breakdown of grapes, which I found posted on Snooth.
I had a glass of Andronicus with filet Mignon at a restaurant last night and it was absolutely fantastic. Pairs very well with the red meat. It’s not a fruity jammy California Cab. Much more nuance but still big and bold, nice solid tannins, long finish. Black currant cool mint eucalyptus.
is there anymore stock of this wine to buy in 2006 or 2007. i love it and cannot find….help
Last time I checked Cheuvronts restaurant in Phoenix had it by the bottle
