Poise, elegant, restraint - these are just a few of the things that Philip Togni values in his winemaking, rather than striving for the biggest, most powerful Cabernet he aims for structure & balance. His Tanbark Hill is high-toned with grippy tannins, accessible or ready to age. Pair with grilled beef.
Tessier El Dorado Cabernet Franc Camino Alto Vineyard 2019
Kristie, and other California winemakers, only narrowly beat the wildfires that swept the American west in 2019. Lucky for us, because this Cabernet Franc is the thirst-quenching bottle we didn’t know we needed. Kristie’s touch is decidedly European; she opts for a slow-and-steady approach to aging in new oak to take this Loire transplant from outsider to outgoing.
