Philip Togni Cabernet Sauvignon 1990

96/100 PP

"This small 10-acre estate situated high on Spring Mountain produces some of the most distinctive Napa Valley wines. Togni has been a long-time believer in not acidifying and his wines are never filtered at bottling.

Togni's ability to harvest ripe, sweet fruit is evident in the 1990 Cabernet Sauvignon, a wine with awesome intensity. It may be the most opulent of the four vintages (1990 - 1993). According to Togni, 1990 produced his smallest crop, which may account for the wine's extraordinary concentration and intensity. It exhibits ripe fruit buttressed by sweet toasty oak, and jammy black-cherry and blackcurrant flavors. The wine is just beginning to open up and strut its stuff.

Togni's Cabernet Sauvignon, generally made from a Bordeaux-like blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc, and aged 22 months in small French oak casks of which 25-40% are new, is one of the richest, most complex Cabernets made in California. Every time I have the opportunity to go back and taste an older vintage I am impressed with the complex aromatics the wine develops. How reassuring it is to see these Cabernets become even more impressive with bottle age. The first Philip Togni Cabernet Sauvignon vintage was 1983, a wine that remains not only young, but one of the top wines from this unimpressive vintage for most other Napa wineries. The upcoming releases look to be sensational, with the 1992 now being released, and the 1993 in a year."

"Sehr jung und konzentriert 2009 der Philip Togni Cabernet Sauvignon. Wunderbar die perfekte, sehr klare Frucht, massig Holunder und dazu Brombeere, reife Blaubeere und eine schöne Fruchtsüße, am Gaumen sehr druckvoll, vielschichtig und lang, aber mit sehr präzisen Konturen. Ein echter Kalifornien-Klassiker, der die reife kalifornische Frucht mit der Struktur eines großen Pauillac verbindet – 95/100. Auch 2010 und 2013 immer noch blutjung, puristisch schöne Frucht, viel Holunder, Brombeere und Blaubeere mit schöner Fruchtsüße, am Gaumen druckvoll, konzentriert mit präzisen Konturen – 96/100."
