Philip Togni Tanbark Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
This delivers a core of chunky currant and bitter plum flavors, laced liberally with savory, tobacco and iron notes. Reveals an austere side, as well as energy and length. The fruit is accessible already, but there's no rush. For the old-school crowd. Best from 2021 through 2030. 420 cases made.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Tanbark Hill Vineyard captures all the signatures of the Togni house style in a medium-bodied, accessible style that will be easy to drink and enjoy upon release. Savory herb, blackberry, crushed flowers, sweet tobacco and earthy notes give the 2016 its distinctive aromatic and flavor signatures. Silky and gracious to the core, the 2016 Tanbark Hill Cabernet Sauvignon is a winner.
Dee garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Tanbark Hill Vineyard is wonderfully expressive, offering notions of Black Forest cake, warm cassis and blackberry preserves with hints of licorice, red roses and cedar chest plus a touch of menthol. The medium-bodied palate is laden with perfumed black berry flavors, framed by plush tannins and uplifting freshness, finishing on a lingering minty note.
