Tasting Notes

Togni's 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon explodes onto the palate with layers of dark fruit, roasted coffee beans, autumn leaves and spices. This is an immensely satisfying wine graced with striking inner sweetness and a vibrancy that will drink well for another 15+ years. The density of the fruit at ten years of age is remarkable. The 2001 is a re-release from the estate's library. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2027.

Score: 97Antonio Galloni, vinous.com (198), December 2011

An absolutely spectacular wine (and one of my all-time favorites from this incredibly consistent and reliable producer of long-lived Cabernet Sauvignons), the 2001 is still an infant at age ten. Its inky/blue/purple color is followed by an extraordinary bouquet of creme de cassis, blueberries, black olives and white flowers. Dense and full-bodied with a multidimensional personality yet incredibly young and unevolved, this wine tastes no different than it did when I had it eight years ago. A remarkable effort from Philip Togni, it will not hit full maturity for another 5-10 years and should keep for three decades thereafter.
