Last year's release, the 2013, may be a hard act to follow as it was given 100 points by Antonio Galloni. In our own tastings of the 2014, it is hard to see any way in which it is any less a wine than the 2013, but time will tell. The weather in 2014 was fairly normal, though with underlying drought conditions. Some spring rain required additional work in the vineyard, while adequate heat led to a harvest beginning on 15th September. The Cabernet Sauvignons are made using barrel selection, but are otherwise handled exactly the same. All fruit is aged for 20 months in 40% new French oak, at which point the decision is made of which lots are blended into each wine. Legendary. Iconic. Benchmark. These are words that can only truly be earned with time, and Philip Togni Vineyard has earned the right to use them all.

Vinous"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is wonderfully savory and mineral, with a host of graphite, liquefied rock, floral and dark stone fruit notes that open up in the glass. Energetic, crystalline and beautifully focused throughout, the 2014 exudes class from the very first taste. Stylistically, it is a bit less generous than the 2013 was at the same stage in its life. This hypothetical blend is every bit as striking as the individual component lots suggested when I tasted them this past spring. Philip Togni adds that a larger than normal crop stretched out the harvest. Today, the 2014 is shaping up to be another uber-classic wine from Togni.
