Made from estate grown fruit on Spring Mountain in Napa.  Togni is one of the "old school" producers still making great wines in Napa.  It is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.  Purple in color with some ruby hues, opaque and bright.  The nose is tight but in the glass it opens to show cassis, dust, tobacco, cedar and vanilla.  Full bodied.  Firm tannins.  Likewise, very tight on the palate.  Cassis, black cherries and spice.  Long finish.  This (no surprise for Togni) needs time.  Ideally, give this five to ten more years in a good cellar and then drink for twenty after that.  After some cellaring, it should go nicely with big heavy meat dishes or also some hard cheese.
