Wine Critic Reviews:

Philip Togni is one of California's most foresighted winemakers, holding back a small amount of wine and releasing it at age ten. This year, small quantities of the 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate were released, and, as I almost invariably do, I rated it higher than I did initially. It is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon that apparently turns to Bordeaux for elegance, structure, and complexity, yet retains Napa's extraordinarily sweet, rich, concentrated fruit. This profound 1995 still tastes like an adolescent. For my palate, it will benefit from another 4-5 years of bottle age, and should last easily for another 20-25 years. It is unquestionably one of California's as well as the world's greatest Cabernet Sauvignons.Robert Parker

Sokolin 1995 Philip Togni Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting Notes:

Chateau Petrus always finds a way to capture one's attention, and it all ties back to their reputation as one of the most innovative, unique, and inimitable wineries of today. Their Merlot-infused masterpieces command some of the highest prices in the world, along with the respect of every wine connoisseur on the planet.

The 1995 Petrus is a slow burner, a wine that rewards patience above all else. On the nose, an incredibly alluring bouquet is presented, featuring traces of blackcurrant, mulberry, vanilla, oak, and spice. On the palate, it's a deeply layered, multi-dimensional puzzle box of flavors and textures, an enigma that stimulates the mind as much as it plays with one's senses.

Structure-wise, it's a massive, bold, tannic wine, one that demands time in the cellar, before emerging like a mighty bear after hibernation. If you manage to acquire a bottle or two of this fantastic wine, consider yourself extremely fortunate, and savor every second you spend with it.

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.
