Current Wine List - Sept 2018
For those of you new to our wines, our vineyard and winery are near the top of Spring Mountain at 2000 feet elevation in the western hills of the Napa Valley. We began planting our vineyard in 1981, though vines were first planted here at the end of the 19th century. One of these vines, of the variety Cinsault, still lives and is in the center of our “main block.” Our ten-acre vineyard is planted as 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. All our wines are estate bottled, meaning we only use the grapes that we grow. Most vintages are very long lived.
Our 2016 Philip Togni Cabernet is a classic wine with great aging potential. The growing season was ideal with harvest taking place the 8-21 September. Unfortunately we were still at the end of a four-year drought so the amount of wine we were able to produce was less than a normal year.
Antonio Galloni of Vinous published the following comments on this wine:
“Togni’s 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep, fleshy and quite powerful, with intense dark fruit and tons of concentration. Black cherry, plum, tobacco, licorice and menthol are all fused together. This is an unusually rich, unctuous wine for Togni. (93-96 points)” Mar. 2018
