An absolutely spectacular wine (and one of my all-time favorites from this incredibly consistent and reliable producer of long-lived Cabernet Sauvignons), the 2001 is still an infant at age ten. Its inky/blue/purple color is followed by an extraordinary bouquet of creme de cassis, blueberries, black olives and white flowers. Dense and full-bodied with a multidimensional personality yet incredibly young and unevolved, this wine tastes no different than it did when I had it eight years ago. A remarkable effort from Philip Togni, it will not hit full maturity for another 5-10 years and should keep for three decades thereafter. (RP)
Togni’s 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon explodes onto the palate with layers of dark fruit, roasted coffee beans, autumn leaves and spices. This is an immensely satisfying wine graced with striking inner sweetness and a vibrancy that will drink well for another 15+ years. The density of the fruit at ten years of age is remarkable. The 2001 is a re-release from the estate’s library. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2027. (AG)
Deep ruby-red, with no brown at the rim. Sexy aromas of blackberry, chocolate, black olive, loam and truffle, plus a whiff of smoke. Supple on entry, then quite firm in the middle, with an energizing line of acidity and solid mineral underpinning giving it a remarkably youthful impression. This has lost some of its baby fat over the last several years but the tannins are in perfect harmony with the wine's fruit, chocolate and violet flavors. Still plenty of future ahead of it. (ST)
Fresh earth, cedar, herb and currant flavors form a complex aroma. Intense and concentrated on the palate, with a slight rustic edge and ample tannins. Shows all the raw ingredients for excellence, yet it's a bit rough and tumble right now. Better than previously reviewed. (Web Only—2005)
