Teeter-Totter Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 | Famed winemaker Benoit Touquette
Teeter-Totter Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 projects a deep, dense ruby/purple. Massive nose of ripe black fruits, graphite, mocha, and toasted notes. Full-bodied and opulent, with silky tannins and an extremely long finish. This is a gorgeous Napa Cabernet for early drinking or a few years in the cellar. Enjoy this intense effort from Famed Winemaker Benoit Touquette
93JD | Made with the idea of an approachable, yet high-quality Napa Cabernet. Of course, the Teeter-Totter Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 from winemaker Benoit Touquette delivers the goods. Possessing a big, sexy nose of ripe currants, cassis, scorched earth, and licorice, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, impeccable balance, and a hedonistic, undeniably delicious style. It will keep for a decade.
90RP | Something of a smorgasbord blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon with dollops of Merlot, Syrah, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc, the Teeter-Totter Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 offers up loads of incense, spice box and dried flowers notions over a crème de cassis, cherry pie and fruitcake core. While the medium to full-bodied palate is plush, rich and bursting with spicy black. In addition red fruit flavors, going pleasantly savory on the finish.
Easily drinks like an over $100 Napa Cabernet
For Teeter Totter, Touquette has leveraged his personal ties to some of the finest vineyards in the valley, achieving a seductive wine priced at $55 per bottle—a wine that quite easily drinks like an over $100 Napa Cabernet. The Teeter-Totter Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 is gorgeous. While boasting a dark and dense profile, with big aromas of ripe black fruit, fantastic structure, and balance. It is capable of long-aging but will deliver a ton of pleasure today. I love this latest release and know you will too.
With Teeter Totter, Touquette doesn’t believe that a truly great Napa Cabernet Sauvignon has to cost $100 or more. In addition given his personal ties to some of the finest vineyards in the valley, he has made a wine that delivers on the vision he had when he founded the label.

Benoit Touquette wrote: I never considered wine until he was in Bordeaux working mobile bottling lines to pay for graduate school. The infectious passion of the winemakers I met, showing up day after day with the same fire in their eyes, blew me away. I switched my focus to enology and completed two degrees. While then leaving France to intern with Andy Erickson and explore uncharted possibilities in Napa Valley. I worked hard, learned from everyone, and pushed myself to deliver the kind of winemaking I believe in. I’ve never missed a picking day, and I’ll spend as much time as it takes to get the wines right.
