RATINGS

93Robert M. Parker Jr.

Boasts beautiful aromas of blackberries, creme de cassis, violets and spice box. Full-bodied with beautiful purity, an incremental, but impressive texture, a certain gracefulness and nobility

92Wine Spectator

Deftly balanced, this restrained style pushes extracted red and dark berry notes to the front, supported by firm, fine-grained tannins.

PRODUCER

Titus

Titus Vineyards is 40-acre estate along the Silverado Trail. It was established in 1968 when Lee and Ruth Titus started acquiring vineyards near St. Helena and replanted them to Bordeaux varietals. The Titus family grew grapes for other producers for about 20 years, then began making their own wine. Today two of Lee and Ruth’s sons, Phillip and Eric, run the estate. Phillip is winemaker. Titus makes Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot blends, and Sauvignon Blanc.

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley

Napa Valley AVA is the most famous winemaking region in the United States and one of the most prestigious in the world. With nearly 43,000 acres of vineyards and more than 300 wineries, it is the heart of fine wine production in the United States. Winemaking started in Napa in 1838 when George C. Yount planted grapes and began producing wine commercially. Other winemaking pioneers followed in the late 19th century, including the founders of Charles Krug, Schramsberg, Inglenook and Beaulieu Vineyards. An infestation of phylloxera, an insect that attacks vine roots, and the onset of Prohibition nearly wiped out the nascent Napa wine industry in the early 20th century. But by the late 1950s and early 1960s Robert Mondavi and other visionaries were producing quality wines easily distinguishable from the mass-produced jug wines made in California’s Central Valley. Napa Valley’s AVA was established in 1983, and today there are 16 sub-appellations within the Napa Valley AVA. Many grapes grow well in Napa’s Mediterranean climate, but the region is best known for Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay is also very successfully cultivated, and about 30% of the AVA’s acreage is planted to white grapes, with the majority of those grapes being Chardonnay,

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
