This small 10-acre estate situated high on Spring Mountain produces some of the most distinctive Napa Valley wines. Since bottling, the 1992 Cabernet Sauvignon continues to display the remarkable richness and opulence it possessed from cask. The wine offers a saturated dark purple color, a jammy, plum, black-cherry, herb, and spice-scented nose, expansive, chewy, full-bodied flavors, superb depth, moderate tannin, low acidity, and a blockbuster finish. It should drink well for more than two decades. Togni's Cabernet Sauvignon, generally made from a Bordeaux-like blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc, and aged 22 months in small French oak casks of which 25-40% are new, is one of the richest, most complex Cabernets made in California. Every time I have the opportunity to go back and taste an older vintage I am impressed with the complex aromatics the wine develops. How reassuring it is to see these Cabernets become even more impressive with bottle age. The first Philip Togni Cabernet Sauvignon vintage was 1983, a wine that remains not only young, but one of the top wines from this unimpressive vintage for most other Napa wineries. The upcoming releases look to be sensational, with the 1992 now being released, and the 1993 in a year.
Distinctive for its racy style: laced with herb, currant, spice and toasty oak flavors, all folding together nicely and finishing with a long, complex aftertaste that echoes herb, currant and black olive. *Cellar Selection*
