The Bordeaux styling of our 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon enhances the wine’s concentrated and classic varietal character. On the nose heady aromas of sweet black cherry encase notes of toasted oak, smoke and rose petals. In the mouth, hints of melted bittersweet chocolate, smoke, black currants and ripe blackberry complement the sweet, full-bodied core, firm tannins and smooth structure.

The 2002 Titus Cabernet Sauvignon strongly exhibits youth and vibrancy with a deep purple core and clear ruby rim. The nose is packed with dark fruit accompanied by aromas of sweet, whole bean coffee. The mouth-feel is dense with sweet, lush blueberry and boysenberry flavors. The fruit is joined by evolved flavors of herbs, spice and smooth, integrated oak leading to an elegant finish with touches of mocha and sweet caramels. This wine has generous, well integrated tannins to age for a few more years but is absolutely a treat to drink now. We recommend decanting this wine for one to two hours before drinking.
As a Library Selection, this wine is available exclusively to members of Titus Vineyards Wine Club.
