Titus 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

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. Helena 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 92 Points from Wine News and 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 rich, hearty dishes. [+]
