Winemaker's Notes

Titus Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from grapes grown at our family vineyard on Silverado Trail just North of St. Helena.To give ourselves greater depth and range in assembling our Cabernet blends, our vineyard is planted to all five of the traditional Bordeaux blending varietals. With the 1998 vintage, the Cabernet Sauvignon was complimented by small amounts of Petit Verdot Malbec, and Cabernet Franc, each one adding to a complex interplay of fruit, spice and delicate herbal tones. The final blend displays aromas of black berry, ripe cherry, toasted French oak as well as subtle earth and herbal tones. The mouth has immediate appeal with mouth-filling, supple tannins rounding out the spicy fruit flavors. The 1998 growing season started out with wet, cool weather, which lasted through the end of May, delaying bud break by 3-4 weeks. In spite of the cool weather, the vines set an abundant crop which added further complications to late season ripening. By careful selection and thinning of the clusters, the crop was reduced to a manageable level allowing the grapesto fully ripen, Thanks to a dry October, accompanied by a windy and hot "Indian Summer", the grapes were harvested at25% sugar in late October.

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes.
