Titus Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012
Dark reddish purple. Red fruit (?) aromas with, maybe, some mint. Stout oaky bouquet. On the tongue, lots of fruit—more cassis and blueberry—but also some sort of cinnamony spiciness. Quite serious tannin on the edge of the tongue. Good supporting acid. Probably, one that I should not have opened quite yet.Add winemaker's notes

Attractive dark red-purple in the glass. "Typical" cabernet yeasty-musty-woody aroma. Not the most full-bodied cab I've ever had. Some berry fruit on the tip of the tongue, the the woody-tannic stuff happens. It is interesting that the astringent tannin sensation pretty much takes over, but does not offend. I can't see this wine winning over a lot of people. It is a good wine that will go better with the meal than alone. US$28.99 at Total wines.
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!
Three and a half glasses
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.

The concentrated and glass filling aromas of black cherry, red currant, and sweet plum come across as being accompanied by sweet oak spices, dark chocolate, raw sugar, and violets. The aromas translate directly to the palate swim along with well integrat
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.
Intense and a tad rustic, offering drying, chewy tannins that have a leathery edge. This delivers dried currant, black licorice and graphite on a full body, remaining dry and minerally on the finish. Decant for now. Drink now through 2018.
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.
The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon has loads of floral notes intermixed with lead pencil shavings, blueberry and black currant. The wine is medium to full-bodied, and displays some white chocolate and plenty of spice. A classic Cabernet Sauvignon, it should drink nicely for 10-15 years. Bright, complex, and intense, our 2006 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon displays concentrated aromas of black currant, cherry, blackberry, dried apricot, violet, tarragon, coriander and dark cocoa mingling with undertones of baking spices and sweet tobacco. The palate is juicy and mouth-filling with well balanced structure and complexity. Vibrant flavors of bing cherries, pomegranate, raspberry, cranberry and blueberry are enveloped with layers of baking and pepper spices, chocolate, and hints of cigar wrapping leaf. The finish is smooth with lasting round tannins, toasty oak, and coffee. Recommended drinking time is three to five years from vintage, with about one hour of decanting prior to drinking. Maximum suggested aging is thirteen years from vintage.
The outstanding 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve has more blackberry, blueberry, espresso, and chocolate notes, with hints of licorice, and again, spring flowers. This dense, rich wine has subtle smoke, full body, and is a seriously endowed, classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. It should drink well for 15 or more years.
Rich, intense and focused on ripe, supple, peppery currant, plum and blackberry fruit thatrsquo;s both complex, concentrated and focused, ending with a long, persistent finish that reveals extra depth and flavor nuances. Ends with firm, dry tannins. Drink now through 2017.
