Two bottles of the 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon (Library Release) have both been terrific. Today, at twenty years of age, the 1994 is firing on all cylinders, with breathtaking complexity and nuance to burn. The 1994 is a classic Togni Cabernet laced with savory/spiced overtones, graphite and spices, all supported by firm yet nicely balanced tannins. I imagine the 1994 will drink well for another decade or so, although I don't expect to see too much improvement from here. Sadly, all my bottles are gone. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Dec 2014)

You never know what to expect from mature California Cabernet, but this wine is still going strong. It has been several years since I opened a bottle and I am still very impressed. All of the qualities of a Spring mountain wine. The mountain man truly makes great wine.

Lush and round with notes of cocoa, tobacco, plums. Opened up quickly to a wonderfully structured palate and lingering finish.

Excellent elegant California cab. Round rich fruit, not over ripe or too much alcohol.

The nose is aged Bordeaux. It is delicious with dark fruit, spice, and tobacco. More like a nicely aged Pauilliac. The smoky finish is deliciously long.
The label was in such bad shape that I had to fill in the torn G for it to be ID'd.
