Wine Critic Reviews:

Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate has a very classic nose of cassis, warm plums and crushed blackberries with notions of cigar box, garrigue, damp soil and truffles plus wafts of menthol and underbrush. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a firm frame of grainy tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and minerally.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 96 RP
A focused, tannic style, featuring tobacco and sage notes intermixed liberally with steeped currant and blackberry fruit flavors, with cast iron and graphite hints flowing underneath. This has loads of character and range, showing vigorous, savory-edged cut. Youthfully rugged, with bramble-edged grip to burn. Cellaring will let all the elements meld. Best from 2021 through 2040. 790 cases made.

Wine Spectator | 96 WS
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is silky, nuanced and remarkably open-knit for a young Togni Cabernet Sauvignon. Soft contours add to the wine's juicy personality. Even though yields were down a whopping 50%, Togni's 2015 is not a huge or massive Cabernet, rather it is a wine that speaks to finesse above all else.

(Cabernet Sauvignon- Philip Togni Vineyard (Spring Mountain)) The 2015 estate bottling of cabernet sauvignon from the Togni family is an outstanding wine that will be very long-lived and utterly brilliant at its apogee, but patience will be required. The bouquet is deep, precise and utterly classical in personality, offering up an aromatic constellation of cassis, sweet dark berries, cigar wrapper, a marvelous base of soil tones, gentle smokiness and a discreet foundation of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is very pure on the attack, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with a fine chassis of seamless, buried tannin, excellent focus and grip and a long, classy and nascently complex finish. This is so beautifully balanced that it gives the false impression that it will come around in the middle term, but though the tannins are sweet and covered flawlessly, this has the chassis of a long-distance runner and will need fully fifteen years in the cellar to really start to properly stir. Once it gets rolling, it is going to be absolutely stunning and for many decades! (Drink between 2033-2100)

Country US: As one of the most prolific and innovative wine regions in the world, America is a joy to explore. Most wine connoisseurs will agree that the nation's finest and most compelling wines are being produced today, which means that we have front-row seats to one of the most inspirational stories in wine history. While other regions tend to focus on specific wine styles and have somewhat strict rules as to which varietals you could grow, areas like California have few such restrictions in place. As a result, creative visionaries behind America's most reputable estates have been able to develop compelling, unique, and innovative styles, with a level of terroir expression that rivals even France's largest giants.

Region California: With a history of wine production that dates back to the 18th century, California currently sits as one of the world's most prolific and reputable wine regions. With an area as vast as California, you can expect a colorful collage of terroir profiles, a series of microclimates, and micro-environments that give the wine a unique, memorable appeal. The region's produce is far from homogenized in that sense, and it would take you countless hours to sample all of it. While the region boasts scars from the Prohibition era, it went through what can only be described as a viticultural Renaissance sometime after the 1960s. At that point, California went from a port-style, sweet wine region to a versatile and compelling competitor on the world market. Today, no matter which way your taste in wine leans, you can find a new favorite producer among California's most talented. Notable sub-regions include legendary names like Napa Valley and Sonoma County, places that any wine lover would die to visit. California's quintessential warm climate allows for incredibly ripe fruit expressions, a style that provides a stark contrast to Old World-inspired, earthy classics. Even where inspiration was clearly taken from staple French appellations, Californian winemakers put their own unique spin on the wine.
Type of Wine California Red: Whether it's Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah or Zinfandel, Californian red wine producers have a lovely habit of taking a varietal and expressing its essence in a unique, never before seen way. From Napa Valley to the regions south of Los Angeles, there's a red for everyone - and it's never too late to start exploring.
