Good full red. Musky, medicinal aromas of plum, dark berries, resin, licorice and underbrush. Silky and sweet in the middle palate, with nicely integrated acidity giving shape to the rather wild flavors of dark berries, leather, cedar and fresh herbs. Finishes with good breadth but the edgy tannins need at least a few years to harmonize with the wine's acidity. The Tognis picked in four days, beginning on October 30, which Philip Togni described as the latest ever, along with the 1998.

Another classic from Philip Togni, his 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain does not have the power and richness of his greatest vintages, but it exhibits the cedary, Pauillac/St.-Julien style that Togni routinely achieves. A healthy dark ruby color is followed by a sweet kiss of underbrush, forest floor, black currants and a whiff of tapenade. Medium to full-bodied and playing close to the vest at present, it reveals good fruit as well as the potential to evolve for 15 or more years.

About This Producer


This family-owned and run vineyard, founded in 1981, sits near the top of Napa Valley's Spring Mountain. Formerly a producer of Cabernet and Sauvignon Blanc, Togni Vineyards is now concentrated on its estate Margaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc. This age-worthy blend reflects Togni's early wine education and influence as a student of Emile Peynaud at the University of Bordeaux. With an annual production of only 2,000 cases, Togni wines are in limited supply and high demand. The estate grown and bottled Cabernet Sauvignon is a juicy combination of black cherry, currant, cassis, and licorice. In addition to the current release each vintage, Togni re-releases a 10-year-old bottling to showcase his wine's true aging potential. A second label, Tanbark Hill, is produced from younger vines on the estate property. Rounding out the portfolio, Togni also makes a sweet red known as Ca'Togni produced from Black Muscat.
