As is the practice at this winery they hold back 50 or so cases of their finest vintages for release after a decade. The current release of their library selection is the 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon a magnificent effort that for me is one of Togni’s six or seven finest wines. Its deep plum/purple color reveals only a touch of lightening at the edge. A glorious perfume offers up aromas of plums figs creme de cassis smoke hickory spice and high quality cigar tobacco. In a blind tasting this California Cabernet could easily be mistaken for a great Pauillac given its structure density richness and perfume. This 1994 is just beginning to move into its adolescence. Even though it has 20-25 years of life remaining it is approachable. It is a monumental Cabernet Sauvignon from one of the valley’s legacy producers.

Two bottles of the 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon (Library Release) have both been terrific. Today, at twenty years of age, the 1994 is firing on all cylinders, with breathtaking complexity and nuance to burn. The 1994 is a classic Togni Cabernet laced with savory/spiced overtones, graphite and spices, all supported by firm yet nicely balanced tannins. I imagine the 1994 will drink well for another decade or so, although I don't expect to see too much improvement from here. Sadly, all my bottles are gone.

Strikes a nice balance between toasty buttery oak and ripe cherry and plum flavors. It's not as big or as intense as this wine can be but it still packs in enough racy Cabernet flavor to hold your interest. Tannic but... Strikes a nice balance between toasty buttery oak and ripe cherry and plum flavors. It's not as big or as intense as this wine can be but it still packs in enough racy Cabernet flavor to hold your interest. Tannic but balanced. Try in 2001. 1752 cases made.
