Titus Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Winemaker Notes :
The 2016 exhibits aromas of pomegranate, Bing Cherry, crushed flowers, sweet herbs, dried cranberries, and mocha. The delightful aromas follow through to the mouth-filling and concentrated palate with flavors of French plum, mission fig, fruit leather, cocoa powder, and espresso. The lush tannins and acid provide freshness and grace to the wine that makes it tasty and approachable. Enjoy now through 2026.
Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6.5% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot, and 3.5% Malbec.

Jeb DunnuckThe similarly colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon gives up more density and depth as well as meaty red and blue fruits, forest floor, and earth. It's layered, has terrific purity of fruit, a supple texture, and the purity of the vintage. Drink it over the coming decade or so.
VinousThe 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is an attractive, mid-weight wine with tons of near and medium-term appeal. Dark cherry, plum, blueberry, new leather, spice open up effortlessly in this expressive, silky Cabernet from Titus. I would prefer to drink it over the next 10-15 years.
James SucklingSome quite meaty and spicy oak aromas here with a wealth of ripe mixed berries. The palate has a very smoothly arranged feel with toasty oak threaded through ripe, plush and soft berries. A blend of 85 percent Cabernet Sauvignon with Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. Let the oak settle. Try from 2020.
Wine AdvocateBlended of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6.5% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot and 3.5% Malbec, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a little closed, revealing subtle suggestions of crushed blackcurrants, blackberries and warm black plums with touches of cigar box, dried Provence herbs and underbrush. Full-bodied and packed with firmly textured, muscular fruit, it has a restrained, earthy character and pleasant herbal sparks lifting the finish.
