Spring Mountain District, Napa Valley

Philip Togni Vineyard

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Dark red purple. Classic Cabernet nose and palate of cassis and underripe blackberry with oak and very gentle bell pepper undertones. Medium tannins and medium plus-ish acidity. Old school style Napa Cabernet with an excellent balance between fruit and structure. Excellent match for that porterhouse. Drink now through 2032. — 21 days ago

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

From magnum. Cork and wax were a mess. Totally disintegrated and required the coffee filter and everything just to pour and decant the wine

3 hour decant before dinner. Paired with wagyu ribeye steaks. Amazing. This wine was just balanced and smooth. Just delicious.

I recently enjoyed a '70, a top ten lifetime wine for me.

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Surprisingly good. Under 14% which I appreciated. Not giving a ton on the nose, but great red and dark fruit with sweet wood and earth. Nice finish too. — 12 hours ago

Relentless Napa Valley Syrah Petite Sirah 2002

Buried deep inside the cellar. Didn’t like it much 20 years ago but it’s evolved into a very good one. Short decant. Fine sediment that most stuck to the side of the bottle. Black raspberry, floral notes, great color no brown edges even. Definitely California style but I was pleasantly surprised. — 3 days ago
