My 8th place wine/ Groups 8th place wine This smelled a touch under-ripe on the nose with a nice spiced note but lots of overwhelming pickle barrel and herb tone that dominated the light, raspberry fruit. In the mouth this was soft at firth then turned a bit feathery with the stern tannins peaking out on the finish that was drying and short. Not much worth revisiting here and this lost appeal with air. 84pts

Wine Advocate ReviewPhilip Togni is one of Californias most foresighted winemakers, holding back a small amount of wine and releasing it at age ten. This year, small quantities of the 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate were released, and, as I almost invariably do, I rated it higher than I did initially. It is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon that apparently turns to Bordeaux for elegance, structure, and complexity, yet retains Napas extraordinarily sweet, rich, concentrated fruit. This profound 1995 still tastes like an adolescent. For my palate, it will benefit from another 4-5 years of bottle age, and should last easily for another 20-25 years.

The 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits an opaque black/blue color, and a marvelously complex, blackberry/blueberry, cedary, chocolatey, licorice-scented nose. The flavors unfold on the palate, wit... Robert Parker. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1995 Togni, Philip Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

It possesses a saturated purple color in addition to a thrilling but still reticent nose of blackberries, cassis, minerals, dried herbs, and smoky oak. Full-bodied, pure, thick, and creamy-textured, this wine's superb concentration conceals its lofty, but sweet tannin. Togni's wines possess exceptional aging potential, but it will be hard to keep your hands off this one after it has had another 2-4 years of bottle age.
