Winemaker's Notes

"Readers looking for more ripeness, opulence, and an extroverted character should check out the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is actually a larger crop than 2005. This sensational dense purple-colored effort boasts delicious blueberry, black raspberry, cassis, licorice, and olive-like notes. In the mouth, there is more creme de cassis as well as background toasty oak, structure, and tannin. I don't think there has ever been a vintage where Philip Togni has cheated anybody on flavor intensity or tannic structure as his wines always last, even in lighter vintages, for twenty or more years. The 2004 will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age, and should last for 25-30 years. It is, atypically for the vintage, front-end loaded." - Wine Advocate

Critical Acclaim

"Full medium ruby. Black raspberry, chocolate, minerals, tobacco, earth and a gamey nuance on the rather musky nose. Sweeter, broader and finer-grained than the 2005, in a distinctly easygoing, pliant style for this mountain cabernet. Highly nuanced flavors of plum syrup, violet, smoke and minerals. Though plenty tannic, here the tannins are not dry. Incidentally, Togni told me that the crop level at his estate is "the major variable affecting wine quality," but I prefer the balance and sweetness of this wine to the 2005, a year that featured a smaller crop."

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
