A past Wine Access story about 2015 Teeter Totter Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

One of Napa’s Great Luminary Cabernet-Makers

Even though Benoit Touquette has earned eight 100-point scores, he’s still one of Napa’s great under-the-radar winemakers. While he crafts some of the Valley’s most expensive and elusive wines, Touquette doesn’t believe that a truly great Napa Cabernet Sauvignon has to cost $100 or more. His Teeter Totter Cabernet, for instance, was our hottest under-$50 Cabernet of last year. For Teeter Totter, Touquette has leveraged his personal ties to some of the finest vineyards in the valley, achieving a seductive wine priced at $49.99 per bottle—a wine that quite easily drinks like an over $100 Napa Cabernet. The 2015 Teeter Totter is a gorgeous, 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.   

You can make it in Napa as a winemaker—either on your own or on someone else’s dime. If you’re bestowed with a 100-point score, all heads turn and suddenly you’re on every Silicon Valley wine enthusiast’s speed dial. Land another 100 points and you can start thinking about the color of the first Aston Martin you’re going to buy.

Touquette has arrived at an almost unimaginable pinnacle as a Napa winemaker—he’s the author of eight 100-point wines for Realm in the last three vintages. Touquette first worked alongside Andy Erickson, sharing responsibilities in the famed cellars of Screaming Eagle, Dalla Valle, Arietta, and Ovid.

With Teeter Totter, Touquette doesn’t believe that a truly great Napa Cabernet Sauvignon has to cost $100 or more, and 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.

Not as thrilling as the 2014 but maybe it needs more bottle age to settle down
