Philip Togni Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Spring Mountain District|
Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon impresses for its length and total class. Mocha, game, smoke, graphite and plums are all supported by veins of cool, insistent minerality. This isn't a blockbuster Cabernet, rather it is a wine that impresses for its finesse and precision. Sweet red cherries, mint, pencil shavings and violets are some of the notes that are layered into the super-refined finish. As always, Togni's Cabernet Sauvignon is distinguished for an extraordinary bouquet that recalls some of the great wines of the Medoc and the structure to age gracefully for years. It will be interesting to see if the 2010 blossoms in bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040.
Wine SpectatorTrim and balanced, with flavors that tilt toward dried herb, currant, jalapeño and road tar. Presents a complex, understated range of flavors and a supple texture. Drink now through 2023.
