The name Hanna means different things in various languages. For example Hanna in Kurdish means hope, in Persian the name means flower and in Arabic it means happiness for example. Those various meaning might just sum up the experience of Hanna Winery—hope, flower and happiness. Hope the vision and expectation of winery founder Dr. Elias S. Hanna. Christine, his daughter is today the President of the Winery. Flower in that the bouquets of Hanna wines are fresh and lively and all their wines extoll happiness on those who experience them on their palate.

Wanted something “good but different” last week so pulled this wine. This is Hanna’s 2015 Bismark Mountain Vineyards, called Titan. The word Titan means a person or thing of very great strength, intellect or importance. This wine comes from Moon Mountain District, the Bismark Mountain Vineyard in Sonoma County. This wine is a red blend comprised of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Malbec, 16% Petite Verdot and 14% Cabernet Franc. A great “Bordeaux style” wine. Only 370 cases were produced. Naming it Titan is appropriate with its bold taste, structured tannins and deep coloring. Oak, tobacco and vanilla are the dominant aromas and tastes of blackberry and black fruit are delicious. Layers of smooth enjoyment and a mid-lasting finish.
A memorable wine living up to its name, Titan!
