The 2018 Titus Family Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon shows off the typical concentration and depth that is quintessential of the vines grown in the rocky soils at our Ehlers Lane Vineyard. The wine is dark with aromas of cassis, blueberry, roasted coffee, molasses and lifted floral notes. The body is dense and powerful on entry with purity displaying black raspberry, blueberry, and black currant flavors. The structure is focused with mouthcoating tannins that draw the wine through the palate. The finish is rich and lingering, accented by essences of cigar box, dark chocolate and espresso. Enjoy from 2029-2038.
In 1968 Lee and Ruth Titus bought 50 acres north of St. Helena in the North Napa Valley. Son Phillip Titus is the winemaker for both Chappellet vineyards and Titus vineyards. Since 1990 limited quantities of distinctive Cabernet and Zinfandel have been produced.
