    ($90) Bright medium ruby. Black fruits, dark chocolate, leather and earth on the slightly stunted but pure nose. Large-scaled and impressively concentrated, offering briary mountain berry flavors complicated by an exotic element of dark chocolate liqueur and nicely lifted by underlying minerality. This seriously deep, youthfully inky wine finishes with powerful building tannins and outstanding length. Even better than I suggested a year ago. |The tannins are strong, so this wine should be good in ten years,| said Philip Togni, who feels that his 2005 is more approachable today. Incidentally, the Tognis have had their own bottling equipment from the very beginning-a rarity for a winery that releases just 2,000 cases in a good year.

    The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate remains one of the finest bargains for long-lived California Cabernet Sauvignon. A dense purple color is followed by stunning aromatics of creosote, black olives, blackberries, cedar, and cassis. Full-bodied with a multi-layered texture, decent acidity, and substantial, but ripe, noble tannins, this excellent effort will benefit from 5-6 years of bottle age, and will be another 30+ year wine.

    Dark plum flavors with distinct coffee beans and black currants. Not overly heavy body but borders on bitter, with nice tannins on the finish. A good wine but overrated and overpriced.

    Interesting nose, subdued gamey fruit, old wine aroma of must and leather. Good body, nice acidity...definately complex like a bordeaux. deep dark fruit, cassis and strong licorice overtones. Tannins are not as well rounded in the finish....leaves you wanting to let it age more and hope the fruit holds up.

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.

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
