Tankbark Hill is the companion wine to Philip Togni’s flagship Margaux-style blend. It’s made from specific blocks of the estate vineyard where different soils deliver a different experience, and it’s built to be approachable young. The 2019s are off the charts, with excellent growing conditions delivering a classic expression and an absolute delight of a Cabernet. Red berry fruit, rose petals and spice are all wrapped up with a silken bow. Enjoy immediately.

Phillip Togni—who was making wine in the Napa Valley before Alaska was a State—is a Napa Valley legend. Today he and his daughter Lisa farm Phillip Togni Vineyard, a totally self-sufficient estate on Spring Mountain, and make an extremely rare, old-school, “Margaux-type” Cabernet blend there. Togni’s 2013 wine garnered a perfect 100-point score from Antonio Galloni, and countless others have scored in the high 95-99s. Togni has made more legendary wines than almost anyone in the valley (e.g. 1969 Chappellet). What can you do when your own reputation is a tough act to follow? Just keep making great wine.
