Every year we release our Cabernet Sauvignon in February—or almost every year. Since the 2010 Far Niente Cab, heralding from an especially small vintage, sold out in September, we decided to release our newest Cabernet this month.
Like the previous vintage, the 2011 Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a cooler-than-average year and offers intriguing sophistication.
Winemaker Nicole Marchesi offers these tasting notes: “The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of tobacco leaf, dark cherry and a whisper of floral perfume. A silky entry leads to a juicy midpalate of red fruit and earth. Fine tannins carry a light briar note, lingering on an elegant finish.”
To acquire this wine, click here or call us at (707) 944-2861.
Save the date: join us in celebrating the vintage February 8, 2014. Details to follow.

Some say the devil is in the details, but we like to think that the beauty is in the details. The 2013 Far Niente Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon still have a long way to go before they reach their new homes in your cellars, but here is a glimpse of what you have to look forward to–a behind-the-scenes look at the Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon harvests this year:
Earlier this month we unveiled our new wine gift catalog. Have you seen it yet? If not, take a look here. The catalog is full of beautifully packaged wines from Far Niente and our sister wineries Nickel & Nickel, Dolce and EnRoute–perfect for your host or hostess, or for gracing your own table.
Far Niente Classic, a single bottle each of our current release Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, is one gift idea–check out our catalog for more! Each gift is linked to our online store for easy purchasing, or call us at (707) 944-2861 for personal assistance.
Who doesn’t love a great love story? We sure do, especially if it involves a bottle of Far Niente. Stephanie and Cory were bidding on a bottle of 1997 Far Niente Cabernet at a silent auction in La Jolla, California. Every time Stephanie placed a bid, Cory topped it. Finally, Cory approached Stephanie with the offer that he would buy the bottle if she would share it with him. It was love at first sip and the couple married in St. Helena on October 10, 2010, and have made their home in the Napa Valley.
Fast forward to October 10, 2013, when Cory and Stephanie made their first visit to Far Niente, on their third wedding anniversary, with a mission to acquire our 2010 Far Niente Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon, the vintage from the year they wed. Cory and Stephanie were gracious enough to share their story, and their smiles, with us as we toasted their married bliss.
