|WA 97 (2/2005): As is the practice at this winery, they hold back 50 or so cases of their finest vintages for release after a decade. The current release of their library selection is the 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon, a magnificent effort that, for me, is one of Togni’s six or seven finest wines. Its deep plum/purple color reveals only a touch of lightening at the edge. A glorious perfume offers up aromas of plums, figs, creme de cassis, smoke, hickory spice, and high quality cigar tobacco. In a blind tasting, this California Cabernet could easily be mistaken for a great Pauillac given its structure, density, richness, and perfume. This 1994 is just beginning to move into its adolescence. Even though it has 20-25 years of life remaining, it is approachable. It is a monumental Cabernet Sauvignon from one of the valley’s legacy producers. |
VM 96 (12/2014): Two bottles of the 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon (Library Release) have both been terrific. Today, at twenty years of age, the 1994 is firing on all cylinders, with breathtaking complexity and nuance to burn. The 1994 is a classic Togni Cabernet laced with savory/spiced overtones, graphite and spices, all supported by firm yet nicely balanced tannins. I imagine the 1994 will drink well for another decade or so, although I don't expect to see too much improvement from here. Sadly, all my bottles are gone.
WS 90 (11/1996): Strikes a nice balance between toasty, buttery oak and ripe cherry and plum flavors. It's not as big or as intense as this wine can be, but it still packs in enough racy Cabernet flavor to hold your interest. Tannic, but balanced. Try in 2001. 1,752 cases made.
|VM 94 (11/2013): Pine, menthol, savory herbs, licorice, dark cherry and plum notes emerge from the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon. With time in the glass, the 2011 fleshed out beautifully while retaining a classic, mid-weight profile. My sense is that the 2011 will develop along the lines of the 1994, a wine that remains distinctly floral, savory and medium in body, with less of the explosiveness of years such as 1985 or 1997, but with tons of class and style. It is going to be interesting to find out. The 2011 was bottled just a few months ago, so I will not be surprised if it shows even better than this note suggests with time. In 2011, the fruit came in a whole month later than normal.|
IWC 91+ (5/2014): Good full red. Musky, medicinal aromas of plum, dark berries, resin, licorice and underbrush. Silky and sweet in the middle palate, with nicely integrated acidity giving shape to the rather wild flavors of dark berries, leather, cedar and fresh herbs. Finishes with good breadth but the edgy tannins need at least a few years to harmonize with the wine's acidity. The Tognis picked in four days, beginning on October 30, which Philip Togni described as the latest ever, along with the 1998.
WA 90-92 (10/2013): Another classic from Philip Togni, his 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain does not have the power and richness of his greatest vintages, but it exhibits the cedary, Pauillac/St.-Julien style that Togni routinely achieves. A healthy dark ruby color is followed by a sweet kiss of underbrush, forest floor, black currants and a whiff of tapenade. Medium to full-bodied and playing close to the vest at present, it reveals good fruit as well as the potential to evolve for 15 or more years.
