medium acidity with strong tannin finish Updated May 01, 2009 - Slightly herbacious nose. Very smooth and well balanced. Fruit is delicous and present up front. Tastes of blackberry, tobacco, and black cherries. Subtle mix of tannins and acidity provide excellent balance and finish.

This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Platinum Series selection. Titus Vineyards’ 2005 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was produced from the winery’s family estate vineyard, located on Napa Valley’s floor just north of St. Helana on the Silverado Trail. The site is characterized by its ability to produce complex wines with well-defined fruit flavors, gentle acids and naturally balanced tannins. Awarded 91 Points from Connoisseurs’ Guide, this release is the fourth vintage of Titus Reserve Cabernet and exudes the unique, chewy and rich varietal characters of the winery’s best estate grapes. Blending in a small amount of Petite Verdot elevates the wine’s elegant structure while a bit of Malbec and Cabernet Franc highlight the wine’s red fruit characters. This robust red wine is firing on all cylinders – mouth coating and full bodied, elegant and lush. Deep aromas of ripe blackberry, cherry and cassis are framed by layers of sweet and spicy oak, exotic allspice, smoky vanilla, mocha and smooth milk chocolate nuances. On the palate, the firm but round tannins balance the ripe fruit notes, espresso and sweet oak flavors that pair nicely with grilled steaks and rack of lamb. Aged 22 months in oak. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petite Verdot, 2% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Franc. Enjoy now until 2015.

bright and lush, our 2005 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon displays aromas of cassis, blackberry preserve, geranium, violet, and crème brulée flushed with sweet oak spice. On the palate, an impressive, mouth-filling structure supports vibrant flavors of red cherry, cranberry and black currant. Layers of oak spice resonate with tones of coffee, toast and toffee that linger throughout the smooth finish. Recommended drinking time is three to four years from vintage, with about one hour of decanting prior to drinking. Maximum suggested aging is ten years from vintage.

Rich, dark and intense, this is well-focused on the currant and blackberry fruit. Its also well-structured, with firm tannins, yet the earthy Cabernet flavors flow through nicely. Best from 2011 through 2016. 505 cases made. -JL Our fourth vintage of Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon exudes the unique, chewy and rich varietal characters of our best estate Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

vintage after vintage our Cabernet Franc balances lush notes of blue and black fruit against delicate hints of tea leaf and smoke in a velvety mouthful of wine. Our 2004 Cabernet Franc is complex, with bright intensity, round chewy tannins and a lengthy finish. rich aromas of blueberry, pomegranate and linden flower are complemented by secondary characters of black olive, cedar and vanilla. In the mouth, straightforward flavors of ripe strawberry and boysenberry are joined mid-palate by hints of smoky Earl Gray tea, black olive and violets that linger through the long finish.
