2009 Philip Togni Tanbark Hill Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Quick Overview

Philip Togni Second Selection of the barrels that don't go into the Estate! The 2009 Tanbark Hill is well priced and totally over delivers! Aroma's are intense leading to tones of creme de cassis, cedar, hints of spice. On the palate, it’s amazingly fresh, full-bodied, super-focused, and revealing no signs of age. It is definitely a memorial Cabernet Sauvignon to California and an respectful British-born winemaker who continues to bring us some of the world’s most interesting wines.

2009 Philip Togni Tanbark Hill Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

This is a breathtaking set of wines from Philip, Birgitta and Lisa Togni. Philip Togni hardly needs an introduction to lovers of fine Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Since his epic 1969 Cabernet Sauvignon at Chappellet, Togni has crafted a series of impeccable, breathtaking wines. It is amazing to consider that Togni’s wines remain so reasonably priced when an endless number of new wineries with no track record seem to pop up every day with first releases well over $100 a bottle. The winery is very much a family affair, with Birgitta and, increasingly, Lisa Togni running the show. On an earlier visit this year I tasted the 1987, a wine that remains dazzling for its purity. From time to time Togni releases a small amount of wines from their library, usually at the 10th anniversary of an important vintage. I also tasted the 2008s, sleeper wines from an under-the-radar vintage that will thrill those who have the patience to cellar them. The estate’s Tanbark Hill is a second selection made from the barrels that don’t go into the Cabernet Sauvignon. All of the wines see approximately 40% new oak from four different tonneliers. -Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate


ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2009 Tanbark Hill is a rich, voluptuous wine graced with layers of expressive fruit, smoke and tobacco. It shows quite a bit of depth for this bottling. Licorice, crushed flowers, spices and mint wrap around the plush, inviting finish. This is all elegance and class. In 2009 one-third of the production was bottled as Tanbark Hill. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. -Antonio Galloni
