2019 Philip Togni Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA

This long-lived, elegant, estate bottled wine is made from grapes grown on our ten-acre vineyard at 2000 feet elevation near the top of Spring Mountain, located on the western side of the Napa Valley, west/northwest of the town of St. Helena. We dry farm (so without irrigation) the vineyard ourselves using organic practices. Our first vintage was 1983, made with our original vines planted in 1981.

The current vineyard was planted between 1985 and 1997. The vineyard is planted with 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot so this is the varietal composition of the Philip Togni Vineyard Cabernet. The main scion wood came from two famous old vineyards on Napa Valley hillsides, with a small area budded with clone 337. Rootstocks are primarily 110R, with small amounts of 3309, 420A and 1103. The steepest, rockiest vineyard blocks are used to make our Philip Togni Vineyard Cabernet, with the remaining blocks going into our estate bottled second wine, Tanbark Hill Vineyard.

Harvest began on September 24th in 2019. The grapes, which were picked at 24 to 25 degrees Brix, were sorted, gently destemmed and minimally crushed, cold soaked for 3 days and then inoculated with Montrachet yeast. After a twenty day fermentation, where the temperature reached the high 80Fs, the skins were gently pressed, the wine was racked off its gross lees, and then moved into French barrels from the coopers Nadalie and Taransaud, with 40% of the wine going into new barrels and the remainder into one-year old barrels. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel during the month of November. The wine was then racked every three months before being bottled in July of 2021. 1078 cases were made.

Philip Togni Vineyard is a small, family-owned Napa Valley wine producer, focused on producing high-quality wine from Cabernet Sauvignon. It is one of the oldest producers of the Spring Mountain District AVA (American Viticultural Area).

The wine collection is simple, featuring varietal Cabernet Sauvignon sourced directly from the estate. This wine has strong characteristics of Spring Mountain, quite tannic in its youth but shows its elegance with age. For the impatient, the second label Tanbark Hill is a Cabernet Sauvignon produced from younger vines on the property, and is more approachable in its youth. Additionally, there is a sweet wine in the style of Constantia called Ca' Togni. 

Like the classified growths of Bordeaux, Philip Togni Cabernet Sauvignon shows its finesse in cellaring potential and outstanding quality every vintage. The Tognis have lived on and farmed this golden spot on Spring Mountain for the last 40 years. The estate’s high elevation and well draining soils allow the Tognis the luxury of harvesting on schedule at the preferred ripeness. Fans of his style will find a wine that speaks of the incredible Spring Mountain terroir with ample fruit and a solid foundation of structure, which will age beautifully for decades.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

(Rating 95+) The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a classic Togni wine, meant to be laid down for at least a decade and capable of aging well for 20 years beyond that in a cool cellar. Hints of green olive and thyme add savory nuance to the raspberry and cassis shadings on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is concentrated into a dense, streamlined shape that throws off waves of dusty tannins, buffered by hints of cedar and vanilla, with lingering cassis notes on the finish.

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a classy, sophisticated wine that shows the more restrained side of the year and this site. I imagine the 2019 will flesh out in time. Bright acids, red-toned fruit, dried herbs, mint and silky tannins convey finesse more than power. I especially admire the aromatics today. I can't wait to see how this ages.
