I bought "Lot 1" last time this winery was featured on woot. VERY solid wine. I hope this one is as good

I still can't get wine shipped to Alabama. How about more cheese or Brandini Toffee would be as acceptable.

This goes for $39.99 at the Total Wine in Tampa. It's a really solid cab, not as delicious as the Lot 1 but I've never had anything from Titus that I didn't like.

absolutely. I've had it before and it's incredibly good. While I'm not nearly as eloquent when describing wines, here's a very good review: http://thewinespies.wordpress.com/2008/09/04/2005-titus-vineyards-napa-valley-cabernet-sauvignon/

Its a great week for me to labrat as well as I have Wednesday off and could drink this entire bottle. *wink wink nudge nudge*

89 PTS ROBERT PARKER, JR. The '05 Titus Cabernet exhibits a sweet bouquet of creme de cassis and black cherries, soft tannin, and an easy-going, broad mouthfeel; drink it over the next 8-12 years.

Had our family holiday get together last night. Enjoyed 11 bottles of woot juice including TC Tytanium, Peter's Noirs de Noirs, and Corison Cab. Best to start a replacement program!! This would be nice to rat for a comparison.

My wine fridges are overflowing, and I vowed to not purchase any more wine in 2008. WD, you got me with this offer...I'm in. I have no self control.

The wine seems to be very closed-in and seems to have entered a dumb stage. Sort of a Marcel Meursault.

I'm really wanting these but I got grounded during gift week.

The straw breaking the camel's back was the wine.woot corkscrew when I already have about 10 of the damn things anyway.

mmmmm Titus... loved my Lot 1, the descriptions and reviews tell me about a wine I can enjoy right away and not have to wait on... and at a pretty good price for 05 Nap Cab...

BUT this is where I wish I was psychic and new what was coming because what I don't need in my cellar is more Cab Sav

Ah, who am I kidding, in for 2. Definitely before the deadline!

Edit: Another short review and the cork'd page

p.s. at least tell me we are done with the insanity of the woot-off, for the love of my wallet please!

What he said. Couldn't get in on the Lot 1 last time, as NH shipping was a no go. I *hope* the ship-to list is correct!

Not a screaming deal... but... solid napa cab... in for one. Can't resist.

It is well to remember that there are five reasons for drinking: the arrival of a friend; one's present or future thirst; the excellence of the wine; or any other reason.

Indeed. Both the reviewer's description and Parker's indicate fruit bomb made for current drinking. The pH and alcohol levels are consistent with that.

Many wooters will undoubtedly like this wine very much. Ty Caton fans especially. Given that I prefer traditionally structured Cabernet Sauvignon wines built to age 20 years, with lower alcohol, lower pH, and more tannin on release (hard to describe, when it's just right - you know it when you see it), I don't think I would be one of them.

I appreciate the comparison to some wines with which many of us are familiar. As much as I do like many of TC's wines, his Cab Sauv is not one of my fav's. How would you compare your expectation of the Titus to something like Corrison?

Seeing as she is a g/f, and not a SWMBO, it can't really be all that serious anyway, right? Seems, then, that wine is the correct choice.
