The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is a more closed and restrained style of wine, with firm tannins, Bordeaux-like austerity, but dense ruby/purple with notes of menthol, black currant liqueur, coffee, and a hint of olive. The wine is full-bodied, youthful, tannic, and a promising candidate for long-term cellaring. In fact this kind of vintage at Togni generally means laying the wine away for at least a decade, which is always good advice here. This may be a 30- to 40-year Togni Cabernet Sauvignon.Rating: 92+
Situated above the 2000 feet mark upon Spring Mountain overlooking Saint Helena, Philip Togni Vineyard first planted their vines in 1982. Their initial production in 1983 consisted of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc, and established their “Estate Bottled” concentration. Since then the three owners, Philip, Brigitta and daughter Lisa Togni have developed into crafting a Margaux inspired red blend balancing Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The growing, pressing, bottling, storing and marketing of Philip Togni’s 2000 case production is entirely self-contained and all done on site. Their wines are certainly difficult to get a hold of as they are mainly sold by mailing lists. This is an accomplished winery focused on quality.
