    Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

    As is the practice at this winery, they hold back 50 or so cases of their finest vintages for release after a decade. The current release of their library selection is the 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon, a magnificent effort that, for me, is one of Tognis six or seven finest wines. Its deep plum/purple color reveals only a touch of lightening at the edge. A glorious perfume offers up aromas of plums, figs, creme de cassis, smoke, hickory spice, and high quality cigar tobacco. In a blind tasting, this California Cabernet could easily be mistaken for a great Pauillac given its structure, density, richness, and perfume. This 1994 is just beginning to move into its adolescence. Even though it has 20-25 years of life remaining, it is approachable. It is a monumental Cabernet Sauvignon from one of the valleys legacy producers.

    The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon gets stronger and more compelling each time I taste it. Now in bottle (and being sold at the winery), this opaque blue/purple-colored wine offers up a fragrant, smoky, distinctive, cassis, wild berry, licorice, and coffee-scented nose nicely dosed with high quality new oak. There is remarkable richness and intensity, a sweet mid-palate of ripe fruit, round tannin, and a blockbuster, lavishly-layered finish that lasts for nearly 40 seconds. Are Togni's great vintages the California equivalent of the most exotic, concentrated and ripest vintages of the renowned Pauillac, Mouton-Rothschild? Philip Togni, a legendary California winemaker, must be the least promotion conscious member of his profession ... but then with wines such as these, why not let them do the talking for you? Much of Togni's wine is sold via a private mailing list.
