Titus Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2007
[90 pts Robert Parker] The dark ruby/purple-hued 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits more classic creme de cassis sweet black cherry and spice notes. Again elegance seems to be the modus operandi even though this wine is bigger and more tannic than the Cabernet Franc. It cuts a broad swath across the palate with excellent depth purity and length. It should drink well for a decade or more.
Dark purple in the glass. Fairly volatile nose suggests alcohol, but there is also a good amount of black berry/fruit aromas. On the tongue the berry fruit jumps out, suggesting a New World take on Cabernet. However, the fruit does not blow me away. As the wine passes farther back there are some herbal and spice notes. A hint of sweetness on the side of the tongue. Some tobacco at the very back of the palate. Very tame tannins and moderate acids suggest that additional age on this wine may be of no benefit.
Biggest cab I've ever had...awesome!
External Reviews for Titus Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
A good Cabernet, with pleasantly ripe blackberry, cherry and currant flavors, as well as a nice coating of sweet oak. Feels a little rugged in the mouth, with some edgy tannins. Give it a couple hours of decanting before service.
Winemaker Notes - Our 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a shimmering, intense purple and ruby color. The nose is alluring and complex with aromas of black cherry, blueberry, lavender, currant, apple, sweet basil leaf and exotic notes of toasted chocolate, cr me Brule and oak spice. The mouth-feel is full-bodied and rich with well integrated, fine grain tannins give way to lush, juicy flavors of blackberry and blueberry accompanied by dark chocolate, and anise. The finish is long and velvety with sweet cherry, clove spice, tobacco and pencil shavings. Recommended drinking time is five to ten years from vintage. Maximum suggested aging is fifteen years from vintage.
