2015 Philip Togni "Estate" Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1350399 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate has a very classic nose of cassis, warm plums and crushed blackberries with notions of cigar box, garrigue, damp soil and truffles plus wafts of menthol and underbrush. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a firm frame of grainy tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and minerally. Drink through 2045. (LPB) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A focused, tannic style, featuring tobacco and sage notes intermixed liberally with steeped currant and blackberry fruit flavors. Terrific cast iron and graphite hints flow underneath. This has loads of character and range, showing very vigorous, savory-edged cut. Youthfully rugged, with brambleedged grip to burn. Cellaring will let all the elements meld. *Collectibles* (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

94 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2015 estate bottling of cabernet sauvignon from the Togni family is an outstanding wine that will be very long-lived and utterly brilliant at its apogee, but patience will be required. The bouquet is deep, precise and utterly classical in personality, offering up an aromatic constellation of cassis, sweet dark berries, cigar wrapper, a marvelous base of soil tones, gentle smokiness and a discreet foundation of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is very pure on the attack, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with a fine chassis of seamless, buried tannin, excellent focus and grip and a long, classy and nascently complex finish. This is so beautifully balanced that it gives the false impression that it will come around in the middle term, but though the tannins are sweet and covered flawlessly, this has the chassis of a long-distance runner and will need fully fifteen years in the cellar to really start to properly stir. Once it gets rolling, it is going to be absolutely stunning and for many decades! (Drink between 2033-2100) 94+ Inner quote mark (7/2019)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A fleshy deep, wine, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate exudes richness and sheer exotic beauty from the very first taste. As always, the Togni wines need bottle age to be at their best. In 2015, time will mostly help the aromatics develop, as the tannins are quite soft for such a young wine. Expressive floral and savory notes develop with time in the glass, but the 2015 is years away from hitting its stride. It will be interesting to see where the 2015 goes in the coming years and decades. Sadly, yields are down a whopping 50%. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

A wine that was badly affected by the low yields of 2015, with production down by half. What tiny amounts are available are truly special and yet again make my list for potential wine of the vintage. I say “potential” wine of the vintage because this wine’s true colors won’t reveal themselves for a decade-plus…maybe two. The low yields and drought stress, however, have given this wine a little more softness than in some prior years. There is a dark, sweet core of fruit wrapped around the sinewy, firm structure that defines Togni’s Spring Mountain Cab. Gravelly mountain soil minerals and green tobacco notes linger with long-chain tannins and beautifully preserved acidity. A classic.
