Philip Togni

About Philip Togni

Philip Togni is a living legend who produced Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon 1969, "one of the most extraordinary California Cabernet Sauvignon” that Robert Parker has ever tasted. His eponymous winery hardly needs any introduction to lovers of fine Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. There are very few wineries in the US like Philip Togni, whose wines have a classically Californian sense of independence but a decisively old-world sense of style.

 

Philip Togni was a former student of the great Émile Peynaud at the University of Bordeaux, where he was entranced by the perfumed, refined style of wines produced by the best of the Bordelais. Following his formative inspiration, his estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon follows this style to this day, and his wines have been consistently likened to Saint-Julien and Margaux's top-classed growths more so than fellow Napa neighbours.

 

Today, the winery is still in the capable hands of the Togni family - Philip's talented daughter Lisa Togni has taken charge of the estate's management. Sharing her father's aspiration, they continue to produce an unbroken string of world-class Margaux-styled Cabernets.

 

Philip Togni's Wines

The estate produces three wines only. The estate's flagship wine, Cabernet Sauvignon, is a very age-worthy Margaux-type blend of mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Tanbark Hill Vineyard Cabernet is made from certain Cabernet Sauvignon blocks of our vineyard and is a wine that is more approachable when young. Finally, Ca’ Togni is a very sweet red wine inspired by Constantia, the great South African wine of the 19th century. It has always been made from our small planting of the rare table grape Black Hamburgh.

Philip Togni Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (93+)

Dramatically better, the dark ruby/plum/garnet-hued 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate exhibits a subtly herbaceous nose with hints of sweet raspberries and black currants in the background. More backward than other great vintages such as 2007, 2005, 2004, 2002 and 2001, this medium to full-bodied, substantial 2008 needs 3-4 years of cellaring and should age for 15-20+ years. Although it is not one of his greatest classics, it is still a very fine effort, and will be very long-lived.

Philip Togni Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 (6x150cl)

Wine Advocate (95+)

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is stunningly beautiful and seductive in its red fruit, mint and tobacco. This is a surprisingly accessible vintage for the Cabernet Sauvignon. Today it looks like an excellent choice for readers who want to explore the wines of this iconic producer – as long as it doesn’t close down in bottle. Togni’s 2009 is notable for its exceptional elegance, finesse and pedigree. There is plenty of Spring Mountain structure, but today the 2009 is disarmingly sexy and radiant for such a young wine. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.

Philip Togni Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 (6x150cl)

Wine Advocate (95+)

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon impresses for its length and total class. Mocha, game, smoke, graphite and plums are all supported by veins of cool, insistent minerality. This isn’t a blockbuster Cabernet, rather it is a wine that impresses for its finesse and precision. Sweet red cherries, mint, pencil shavings and violets are some of the notes that are layered into the super-refined finish. As always, Togni’s Cabernet Sauvignon is distinguished for an extraordinary bouquet that recalls some of the great wines of the Medoc and the structure to age gracefully for years. It will be interesting to see if the 2010 blossoms in bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040.

Philip Togni Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 (12x75cl)

Antonio Galloni - Vinous (94-97)

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is wonderfully savory and mineral, with a host of graphite, liquefied rock, floral and dark stone fruit notes that open up in the glass. Energetic, crystalline and beautifully focused throughout, the 2014 exudes class from the very first taste. Stylistically, it is a bit less generous than the 2013 was at the same stage in its life. This hypothetical blend is every bit as striking as the individual component lots suggested when I tasted them this past spring. Philip Togni adds that a larger than normal crop stretched out the harvest. Today, the 2014 is shaping up to be another uber-classic wine from Togni.

Philip Togni Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

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.

Wine Advocate (90)

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Tanbark Hill Vineyard is medium garnet-purple in color with very pretty kirsch, red rose and cinnamon stick notes over a core of crushed black cherries and mulberries. The palate is medium to full-bodied with generous red and black fruits supported by ripe, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing earthy.
