AG94: The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Family Estate Reserve is inky, rich and explosive. Crème de cassis, blueberry jam, chocolate, menthol and sweet spice are all amped up in an unctuous, flamboyantly ripe Cabernet that will drink nicely with minimal cellaring. This is an especially rich, plush style. Hints of graphite, lavender, spice and new leather build into the super-expressive finish. This is very nicely done.
JD93: The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Family Estate Reserve has lots to love. Deep black fruits, chocolate, tobacco, and lead pencil shaving-like notes all emerge from the glass, and it’s full-bodied, has a plush, seamless textured, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It’s an undeniable success to enjoy over the coming 10-15 years.
Our 2017 Titus Family Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our Ehlers Lane Vineyard and exhibits the characteristic concentration and quality of the property. Growing on a rocky knoll in volcanic soils the wine is deep with crushed blueberries, berry compote, violets and glove leather aromas that greet you as you swirl the glass. The body is viscous and opulent with inky color that sustains blueberry, huckleberry, cigar box, and purple flowers. Mouth coating through the finish the wine leaves you with impressions of crème de cassis, warm cocoa and pot de creme. Enjoy from 2020-2037.
