1998 Philip Togni Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Bottled Spring Mountain Napa Valley
International Wine CellarMedium ruby. Expressive, slightly herbaceous aromas of cassis, tobacco leaf, licorice and pepper. Supple in texture but much smaller-scaled than the '99. Fairly intense flavors of espresso, pepper, maple syrup and roasted tomato. Togni declassified nearly 20% of his barrels in '98.
