Heiner Lobenberg über:
Napa Cabernet 2008


Lobenberg: Präsentiert sich auf Anhieb sehr zugänglich: Blaubeeren, Kakao, geräucherter Speck und Brombeeren. Wunderbar polierte Tannine führen in den sehr langen und verführerischen Abgang hinein. Johannisbeere und orientalische Gewürze hallen lange nach. Die perfekte Symbiose aus Margaux, Pauillac und Napa. Großartiges Gleichgewicht ausstrahlend, dabei geschliffen und ungeheuer kraftvoll. Einer der wirklich großen Cabernets der neuen Welt. 96-97/100

Katalog über: Napa Cabernet

-- Katalog: -- Parker: Togni's 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate seems to be a return to the intense style of some of his other classic vintages. While there is no denying its elegance, it appears to possess more stuffing, surprisingly so, than the 2007. It exhibits a dense purple color as well as creme de cassis, forest floor, and subtle wood and spice notes, and a boatload of tannin. It behaves more like a young, unbottled St.-Julien or Pauillac than a typical Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. It will need more time to reach its peak than the 2007, but given this estate's track record, it should last 30+ years. 94-96/100

Internet über: Napa Cabernet

-- Internet: John Gilman: Of the most recent vintages of this wine that I have tasted, the 2008 is my favorite and I believe this is destined to be one of the absolute classic turned out from this excellent Spring Mountain property. The deep and very pure nose wafts from the glass in a superb blend of dark berries, cigar smoke, currant leaf, dark soil tones, a touch of menthol and a fine framing of smoky new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and really refined on the attack, with a rock solid core, firm, chewy tannins and a great sense of refinement on the very, very long, primary and suave finish. This is very early days for this wine (it is after all, a young Togni cabernet!), but it will eventually be extremely polished and vibrant and should eventually rank right up there with the very finest vintages produced at this property, such as the 1996 and 1991. 2028-2075+. 95/100
