1995 Philip Togni Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #998024 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Philip Togni is one of California’s most foresighted winemakers, holding back a small amount of wine and releasing it at age ten. This year, small quantities of the 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate were released, and, as I almost invariably do, I rated it higher than I did initially. It is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon that apparently turns to Bordeaux for elegance, structure, and complexity, yet retains Napa’s extraordinarily sweet, rich, concentrated fruit. This profound 1995 still tastes like an adolescent. For my palate, it will benefit from another 4-5 years of bottle age, and should last easily for another 20-25 years. It is unquestionably one of California’s as well as the world’s greatest Cabernet Sauvignons. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2005)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Togni's 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is simply dazzling. Deep, unctuous and explosive, this Cabernet Sauvignon screams with the essence of exotic spices, iron, graphite, leather, smoke, game and dark fruit. The 1995 gets better and better with time in the glass, revealing myriad shades of dimension and extraordinary balance. Although stunning today, the 1995 has at least another decade ahead of it. The 1995 was made from the original vines that were ten years old at the time. (AG) 96+ Inner quote mark (10/2015)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Notes of cassis, tobacco leaf, cedar and rich soil introduce a classically-proportioned, intense wine structured around a firm core of tannin and acidity. This wine is ageing very gracefully indeed, and benefits from decanting. Drinking Window 2016 - 2035 (WK) Inner quote mark (6/2016)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full ruby-red, a bit pale at the rim. Sappy cherry, black raspberry and roasted plum on the nose. Surprisingly broad and smooth in the mouth, with suave flavors of berries, tobacco, lead pencil, cedar and loam nicely framed by an edge of acidity. I like this wine's subtle balsamic quality. Quite supple in the mouth but has plenty of energy. Finishes with firm, integrated tannins. A lovely drink. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2005)
