    ($90) Good ruby-red. Sexy huckleberry, black cherry, bitter chocolate and licorice on the ripe, briary nose; more expressive today than the Tanbark Hill. At once creamy in the middle and vinous, with slowly building flavors of kirsch, licorice and chocolate. Lovely ripe acidity adds to the impression of intensity. A juicy, firmly structured wine that finishes with very fine tannins. A classic version of this mountain cabernet.

    Displaying a more saturated ruby/purple hue, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate offers a sweet perfume of blueberries, black raspberries, black currants, and spring flowers. More open aromatically than on the palate, it reveals medium to full body, and an elegant, finesse-styled personality. Togni's wines always have a Bordeaux-like structure. It is a gracious, savory effort that should age for 20-25 years.

    Good solid bright red fruit notes. Subtle tannins. Surprisingly not as good (right now) as the 2006.

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.
