2018 was a tremendously successful vintage for Lisa Togni. Her estate Cabernet Sauvignon scored an incredible 96+ points from Lisa Perrotti-Brown (WA) and 93-96 points from Antonio Galloni (VN). A blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and a dash of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the grapes are sourced from vines sitting at 600m above sea level on Spring Mountain, imperiously overlooking Napa Valley.

 

Cemented as one of the best vintages in the modern era, Antonio Galloni (VN) calls this a "very pretty"  wine that presents the hallmark "savoury aromatics and all the finesse of the vintage". Lisa Perrotti-Brown, who scored the wine slightly more favourably, says there are "intense notes of crushed black currants, fresh blackberries and ripe red plums" and a "lively backbone and firm, grainy tannins" on show.

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.
