International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 114

($140; a library bottling, released in small quantities ten years after the vintage) Good ruby-red, with some development at the rim. Complex, mellow aromas of black raspberry, tree bark, smoke, cedar and nutty oak. Sweet, pliant flavors of blueberry, raspberry and nuts, complicated by subtle herbal nuances. Not especially expansive but complex and easy to drink. Finishes with dusty, slightly dry tannins that come across as less refined than those of the 2001. Togni, who ventured the opinion that this wine was not quite ready to drink, thought that he may have pressed the fruit a bit vigorously in 1994 following the end of the cuvaison

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 Togni's 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 valley's legacy producers.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Strikes a nice balance between toasty, buttery oak and ripe cherry and plum flavors. It's not as big or as intense as this wine can be, but it still packs in enough racy Cabernet flavor to hold your interest. Tannic, but balanced. 1,752 cases made.

Drinking well now, good fruit and medium finish. I like other top Napa cabs from this vintage better, but a good wine, still kicking.
